Starting Chance is a non-profit Public Benefit Organisation (NPO No: 164-217 NPO) that is passionate about education and in particular Early Childhood Development (ECD). We firmly believe that transformation in South Africa begins by giving young children aged 0 – 6 living in poverty a starting chance. Why Early Childhood Education?

With this in mind we have developed an integrated model to holistically address all aspects of a child’s early development. How do we support teachers?

Our Field Workers & Educational Co-ordinator

We work as a collaborative team to ensure that everyone is represented and can work together to make ECD best practice in Mfuleni.
