Change Through Education

The Knysna Education Trust is an NPO based in the Garden Route in South Africa, which focuses on Early Childhood Care and Development from 0-6 years. KET has been providing essential services to the ECD sector since 1993, and currently services 128 ECD facilities.

KET’s comprehensive support model is designed to address ECD challenges and ensure children meet developmental cognitive, emotional, and physical milestones. This gives them the foundation to take full advantage of formal schooling.

KET’s Vision: Ensuring young children thrive through quality Early Childhood Development programmes, competent teachers, and caregivers in safe, healthy, and enriched learning environments.

KET’s Mission: For every child to attend a safe preschool, with competent, qualified teachers, where literacy, numeracy, and life-skill lessons happen daily – and where training, on-site mentoring, and support to teachers and parents ensure all children reach crucial developmental outcomes.
