LABE’s Home-Based Early Childhood Development

Is anchored within Family Basic Education (FABE) founded on; pre-literacy development as a key to success for the majority. It is achieved through helping parents to; provide an oral rich language and home literate environment and appreciate their role in preparing and supporting their pre-school children as a vital step to later achievement.

Multi–age ECD sessions for 3 – 5 year olds are facilitated by parent educators/caregivers (PE) from the community for at least 3 hours a day, for 3 days in a week. The sessions are drawn from the National ECD learning framework but built on traditional child-care practices and respectful of children’s linguistic and cultural diversity.
