Early childhood development is an essential educational building block. Although much progress has been made on the development of ECD centres in the Western Cape, there is a lack of specialised developmental educational skills. Many South African children have no access to physical development education, for reasons including lack of resources, confined spaces, no equipment, and lack of teacher training in this subject.

HOEP developed its own exciting Early remedial intervention program for learners aged 4- to 6 years and accompanying workbooks to put these young learners in the starting blocks for successful school careers! The workbooks are combined with teacher’s guides, weekly training sessions for the educators or caretakers presenting the program, a process of quality control and measuring of results.

“The vision of the Heaven-on-Earth Project is to see South Africa change through the impact of educated and loved children.”

Blocks4Growth is a quality ECD programme developed to promote holistic growth within 4-5 year old children to better prepare them for formal schooling. The programme has three target areas namely the children, practitioners (teachers) and parents.

In 2017 Brak en Jan received a major donation from Chempac towards the teachers salaries over the next three years.

Chempac have continued with their financial support.
