This paper contextualises training and skills development needs for Early Childhood Development (ECD) in South Africa with a particular focus on children between the ages of 0 and 4 years. It attempts to review and synthesise existing research on skills supply and demand in respect of the ECD sector for children in the 0-4 year age cohort.
The focus on ECD as a priority sector for research into skills and training needs is informed by the strategic prioritisation of ECD in national plans and which has found expression in various policies and plans articulated by government.
