Our aim is to empower, support and equip caregivers about the importance of age-appropriate stimulation, nurture and love for the children in their care focusing on babies from 3 months to toddlers of 3 years.
Who We Are
Funda Kunye means ‘Learn Together’ in isiXhosa. It was founded by Karen Temlett and Carina Van Der Merwe who share the same objectives to teach and train caregivers who own ECD daycares in informal areas to have an effective impact on the development of the children in their care.
This will create a space where we can learn and grow together to impact the educational standards of a community and grow God's Kingdom.
Ultimately, the correct care and stimulation in the first few years can reduce developmental delays and/or challenges later in these children’s lives. This can change the trajectory of their future.
Our hope is to see our training and Early Learning Programme used productively in order to make a long- term difference in the lives of the children’s cognitive, emotional, social, physical and spiritual development.
