The Play-with-a-Purpose Trust is a South African non-profit organisation that has had over 20 years of Community Development and Early Childhood Development experience.
Preschools 4 Africa aims to assist young children in their quest to obtain quality and relevant early childhood education in order to ensure that they are in a position to ultimately be gainfully employed and become global citizens.
Research indicates that a child that does not receive the correct education in the first five years has a 70% chance of being arrested for a violent crime and has less than a 30% chance of entering tertiary education. We aim to be part of the change in uplifting education in the fight against crime.
The effectiveness of the Play-with-a-Purpose programme implemented through Preschools 4 Africa has been published as a research article in the International Journal of Child and Youth Care: CYC-Net, through Monash University, South Africa.
Preschools 4 Africa is a much consulted expert in the field of Early Childhood Development having been featured as Play-with-a-Purpose on the following: ETV; Morning Live; Pasella; Kaelo; Let’s Fix It; the After Dark with Eric show on SA FM; and on ETV’s Great Expectations – How to find the Perfect Preschool, and others.
