South African Early Childhood Development Awards

The Awards highlight the need for a proper system of early childhood development, one that is integrated in its approach, by considering children's health, nutrition, psycho-social and additional environmental factors within the context of their family and their community.

The South African Early Childhood Development Awards (SAECD Awards) have been in existence since 2003. Download Call for Entries Flyer.

The Awards are championed by the National Development Agency in partnership with the South African Congress for Early Childhood Development, ABSA, Department of Basic Education (DBE) and Social Development (DSD) and UNICEF. The Awards take place on an annual basis, provincially and nationally, to recognise best practise and outstanding participation in ECD through six categories.
