An ECD registration, with the Department of Social Development (DSD), is for any class or baby care facility, from birth until Grade RR/Pre-Grade R. Although there is talk of including the Grade RR’s registration under the Department of Basic Education (DBE), this process will still take a few years to implement. The Children’s Act of 2005 requires that all ECD Centre’s are registered with the DSD. Failure to do so means that the Centre is operating illegally. The DSD can enforce a closure of any Centre at any stage
