Ntataise Network Programme

One of Ntataise’s greatest success stories is the development and growth of a Network which includes some of South Africa’s leading ECD training organisations. This Network has been developed over 30 years and has made its mark in areas where there would otherwise be no ECD provision for young children. The Network grew out of a need to strengthen the delivery of quality ECD services to disadvantaged, rural communities. The first eight organisations were started by Ntataise in the Free State and Mpumalanga. Over time these organisations came to be self-sufficient and independent.

Today the Ntataise Network has become one of the strongest of its kind in the country and its 21 independent member organisations span seven of South Africa’s nine provinces.
