ECD Practitioner Mentorship and Training
Alladin Learning Solutions has designed a ECD Practitioner short course covering all the essential child development knowledge and classroom management strategies. This practical support is often coupled with ALS ECD Resource Boxes which provide ECD centers with the appropriate resources required for facilitating the different areas of child development including physical, cognitive, linguistic and socio-emotional development.
Early Years Resource Packs
Alladin Learning Solutions has designed a series of Foundation Phase and ECD Resource Boxes/Packs. Foundation Phase Resource Packs include 10-15 Mathematics or EFAL resources. The resources and materials are designed using low cost, accessible and sometimes recycled items. ECD Resource Boxes include a variety of resources used to facilitate cognitive, physical, social and linguistic development.
Parents and caregivers are at the heart of a child's educational and developmental success. Our parent programmes look to share information with parents about child development in the formative years. We aim to equip parents with the knowledge and skills to support and facilitate learning and development in the home environment.
