The Department of Social Development in the Western Cape advises that parents always verify if an ECD centre is registered.

Parents have been warned to be more critical of the quality of care provided at the early childhood development centres (ECD) they send their kids to.

This comes in light of a widely-spread video showing a Gauteng crèche worker assaulting a toddler for vomiting in class.
