ECD CoP Meeting Highlights-23 October 2018

The ECD CoP that was held on the 23rd October 2018 was an opportunity for the National ECD CoP to tackle the issue of Nutrition. The consistent message from our esteemed speakers was clear: The ECD community has the potential to play a central role in the promotion and adoption of good nutrition practices, especially in the first 1000 days. Our showcase, which focused on a parent support programme in a non-centre based intervention, showed the National ECD CoP that the parent is the first teacher of a child and that if a parent is capacitated to practice positive parenting, a child’s development outcomes are more likely to be positive.
