News

SANTS Private Higher Education Institute will be the new academic home of the South African Research Association for Early Childhood Education (SARAECE). A strategic planning session was recently hosted at SANTS, exploring the research (big R) aspect of the association. Key players in the education arena attended and contributed to this meeting. Prof Jonathan Jansen and Prof Eric Atmore both attended online as did the Deputy President, Dr Naseema Shaik and Dr Geeta Motilal. Prof Ina Joubert (Executive Academic Director at SANTS and SARAECE committee member); Prof Hasina Ebrahim (UNESCO Co-Chair ECD); Dr Linda Bosman (SARAECE committee); Dr Colwyn Martin (SARAECE committee); Dr Peter Aloka & Dr Erasmos Charamba (ECD researchers at WITS); Ms Michaela Ashley-Cooper (CECD researcher) and Dr Mary Clasquin-Johnson (Barriers to learning specialist at UNISA) were also present face-to-face.

The purpose of this meeting was to reflect on the role of the association in research, how Early Childhood research can be carried forward into the limelight. The association considered aspects such as long-term compelling research creating data to support urgent change in the Early Childhood Care and Education sector. Attention was paid to aspects such as mentorship of researchers; ethical clearance support; and establishing a ‘go-to’ place for ECD research. The delegates provided valuable advice and support and will be making some exciting changes to SARAECE in the months to come.
