Learners from Mustadafin Foundation’s Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres in Cape Town, enjoyed their first outing for 2017 yesterday (22 February 2017) at Bugz Playpark in Kraaifontein. It was a fun-filled and educational day for the 367 ECD learners, aged between two and six years old, as they learned about all the different animals. The Foundation’s four ECD Centres located in Delft, Khayelitsha (Site B and S-Section) and Manenberg went on the day trip.

“The beautiful summer day was perfect to spend outdoors with the children. Educational activities that allowed the youngsters to learn about different animals such as sheep, rabbits and ducks took place throughout the day. Most importantly, they were taught how to look after the environment,” says Ghairunisa Johnstone-Cassiem, Director at Mustadafin Foundation.

“Most of the children come from disadvantaged areas in the Cape Town region; we endeavour to teach them in a fun environment and run different excursions throughout the year. The outing was our first one for 2017 and the children thoroughly enjoyed the fresh air, while learning about different animals and how to care for them. Breakfast and lunch were provided to keep the children’s energy levels high,” concludes Johnstone-Cassiem.
