dc.description.abstract The purpose of this research is to investigate the roles played by the Non- Governmental Organisations in Early Childhood Development in Giyani in the Northern Province. Based on the findings, the study shows that the NGO-ECD centres were established, not only for the purpose of providing employment to their creators but also to provide safe playing centres for the children, while their parents are either at work or undertaking errands. The process of data categorising and patterning showed that the NGO-ECD centres largely contribute in the development of the physical, social and aesthetic aspects of the child. Similarly, the lack of adequate infrastructure, funds, learning materials, as well as suitably qualified teachers, impacts heavily on the quality of the education provided at these centres. The main recommendations made are centred around the observation that all the NGO-ECD centres at Giyani need qualified teachers, effective and professionally-designed programmes and financial resources. It has also been strongly recommended that they should increase the level of parent and community involvement in the day to day running of their educational programmes. en_US
