This week, the Ubuntu ECD team are holding interviews and hosting play groups for more than 80 perspective ECD Scholars and their parents.
Throughout the week, the scholars will come in on their selected day to play with a pre-selected group of peers in their age range. The scholars will be spending some time in our classrooms getting to know the teachers and make new friends. This will help the children in the transition to Pre-k and Toddler classes at Ubuntu next year. During these play groups the teachers will fill in online observation forms using our ipads and capture any great play that might assist us in creating a baseline assessment for each child.
While the children are at play with the teachers, our ECD Manager, Clinic Manager, Youth and Adult Programs Administrator and one ECD teacher will conduct interviews with the parents to create a deeper exploration of their family and help us create a and begin to build a relationship with Ubuntu staff.
