It’s very important to make sure your ECD centre is accredited because there are many requirements for keeping children safe in these spaces. In order for parents and caregivers to make sure the centre of choice has met all of these requirement’s you can request a copy of their certificate of registration. 

There should be two certificates that the ECD centre has, one from the provincial social services department and the other from the local municipality. It’s also very important for caregivers to check that the dates of the certifications are current and up-to-date.
