Nominations and entries for the yearly Absa and Sowetan Early Childhood Development Awards are open.

Through the awards, Absa and Sowetan (for the Aggrey Klaaste Nation Building Foundation) are helping to create a holistic approach to child development.

This is being done in partnership with the South African Congress for Early Childhood Development, Office on the Rights of the Child, Education Department and SABC Education.

It is essentially a search for those unassuming yet remarkable individuals and organisations who develop small children - mentally, physically, spiritually, morally and socially. Awards will be given for:

l Best ECD practitioner;

l Best home-based care centre;

l Best community-based care centre;

l Best resource and training centre.

To nominate or to enter, e-mail ecdawards@makwetla.co.za, call 011-447-5199 to request nomination or entry forms or download them from www.sowetan.co.za or www.absa.co.za. The closing date for entries is November 30.
