Four of our toy librarians have been selected to receive a bursary to access further training in the Early Childhood Development sector through the Jim Joel Fund.

It is a 10-month online course that will teach them more about how to optimally facilitate learning in young children and help the ECD practitioners to use new and recycled educational materials.

Lindelwa Zakwe, Sibusiso Mhlanga, Thuli Ngcobo, Phume Ndlovu are passionate and dedicated to their work. Lindelwa says: “I am very excited about the opportunity to learn more about what is expected of a toy librarian and I can’t wait to implement it in my work.”

LETCEE has both, stationary and mobile toy librarians. They work in 8 different communities in the Umvoti area. The objectives of this project are to improve learning by playing. Fantasy play, Storytime, and Outdoor play are just a few of the activities they do with the children and they love it beyond anything else.

We wish them all the best and are excited to see their progress.
