    Welcome to the online home of Flying Children

    We are dedicated to improving the quality of care and education available to pre-school children in South Africa's disadvantaged areas.

    Our programme offers makeovers that achieve a basic quality of facilities. We conduct intense teaching, mentoring and supervision with the teachers, and then build services in aftercare, parenting training and support.

    Opened in 2012, Flying Children deliveres comprehensive ECD teacher training to women who run home-based childcare centres in informal settlements in the West Rand, Johannesburg. We aim to improve the quality of care these centres offer the children through an intense 3-year teacher training and hands-on mentoring programme. Our teacher-training is provided at no charge to the participating centres and our mentoring programme is unique in that it comprises weekly visits during the educational morning to each centre.

    Because we want our children to fly like eagles!
