Day By Day ECD

Day By Day Early Childhood Development has been providing South African nursery schools with quality, fun, theme-based activities and lesson plans since 2005.

Day By Day Pre-school Curricula

We develop our programmes based on the CAPS and NCF documents. The aim is to turn this mountain of information into practical, easily understood, daily lesson plans which benefit both the teacher and the child. Take a look!

Our unique format of tear-off pads of Activity Sheets for each child, combined with our Guidebooks and Online Resources containing daily plans (with theme discussions, teacher-directed activities, art activities, gross motor games, visual perception games, etc.) provides pre-schools with a plan for the whole year.
