August was a month of remarkable achievements for our Western Cape Team, and we are thrilled to share the exciting news. In a significant stride towards promoting early childhood development and sustainability, we successfully signed up 23 new Toy Library ECD memberships from the Overberg Municipality. These new memberships are a testament to the growing recognition of the invaluable role that toy libraries play in nurturing young minds. We are thrilled to welcome more ECD centres into our network and look forward to the positive impact we can create together.
In addition to expanding our community, we hosted “Make-and-play” sessions that focused on the art of crafting toys from recycled waste. Caregivers, ECD practitioners, and ECD owners joined us for these interactive sessions. The initiative not only promotes creativity and resourcefulness but also instils a sense of sustainability from a young age.
These sessions served as a powerful reminder that learning and environmental consciousness can go hand in hand. Through these “Make-and-play” activities, we engage children in playful learning and contribute to a greener future by reducing waste and repurposing materials.
The Western Cape Team’s dedication to early childhood development and sustainability shines brightly in these achievements. We are proud to celebrate these victories and remain committed to fostering a love for learning and a sense of environmental responsibility among our young learners and their caregivers.
As we continue our journey, we are excited about the positive impact we will create with our new Toy Library ECD members and our commitment to sustainability. Thank you for being a part of our journey in the Western Cape.
