We’re thrilled to announce that the Kids First playcare is open! After two years of collaboration between Cultural Care Kids First Foundation and IMPCT, the doors are now open on a beautiful, safe, modern center for 150 young children in Khayelitsha, South Africa.
IMPCT is a global social enterprise dedicated to transforming low income and urban slum communities through education – in this case, they were a dedicated partner in helping us upgrade what was a very informal daycare in a township just outside Cape Town into a proper preschool where teachers and students alike can thrive.
Half of the funds necessary to complete this playcare were provided by Kids First, and we are so proud to have been a part of it. Be sure to check out this video from the Grand Opening – a wonderful celebration with teachers, parents, children and Cultural Care Au Pair staff.
