Singita recognises that quality early learning is critical in laying foundations for success in later life. Since 2009, we’ve been supporting Early Childhood Development (ECD) initiatives in the communities near Singita Sabi Sand and Singita Kruger National Park in South Africa.
Singita Lowveld Trust, our conservation partner in South Africa, works in partnership with ECD centre (preschool) managers and teachers, government departments and key community stakeholders. Through the Singita Holistic Early Childhood Development Support programme, children are supported to fully develop in physical, cognitive, psychological and social domains.
