Tshwaragano ka Bana – Working together for children

UNICEF South Africa, the Department of Social Development, the Department of Basic Education and the LEGO Foundation have developed easy to understand early learning activity sheets for parents and caregivers of children birth to 5 years. The early learning activities are playful and can be easily incorporated into daily routines using low-cost/no-cost resources. The activity sheets enable parents to support the early learning and development of their children while at home during the COVID-19 lockdown. Translation into the 11 South African languages is underway.

Below is a sample. You can find out more about the series here.
