About Early Childhood Development

The value of Early Childhood Development (ECD) and getting a learner school ready cannot be underestimated and the more input at this level, the better the future performance of each learner. Evidence tells us that a person’s life successes, health and emotional wellbeing have their roots in early childhood. If you get it right in the early years, you can expect to see children thrive throughout school and their adult lives. At Brainwave, we are passionate about supporting teachers, caregivers and parents in applying the principals of school readiness that includes all developmental stages of a child. That is why understanding the need to invest in very young children is so important, to maximize their future well-being.

The RSL workshop focusses on the social, emotional, physical and motor development of a child as well as learning and listening skills, and seeing, eye movements and visual processing. It is a practical course with demonstrations and lessons to ensure the teacher understands how to assist and help the children develop and reach their full potential.
