Lesedi has adopted a Community Development approach to Early Childhood Development (ECD) through our Integrated ECD Care Package (IECP). Central to the IECP is our firm belief that existing ECD Centres and Community Playgroups are valuable community resources, and are well-placed to provide ‘valuable nodes of early learning, care, support and community outreach.’
