Page 98 Annexure A Draft 4.10, October 2003 (32) Appropriate strategies should be found for provision of childcare facilities, especially in sectors and areas where children often have to look after their younger siblings, with a focus on rural poor. The Early Childhood Development (ECD) Programme of the Department of Education aims to provide such facilities for Grade 0/R children for the last year before school. However, effective provincial implementation of this programme must be speeded up and supported financially. Workplace-based child-care facilities should be encouraged. Lead institution: DSD*. Secondary institutions: DrE (grade 0/R), DL (workplace-based provision), LG (regarding crèche facilities funded or provided by local authorities). New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Recurrent cost: moderate to substantial. Time line: To be introduced within three year of adoption of policy. Note: The feasibility of a government programme to fund or provide ECD services is being assessed in the context of a chapter on this issue in the Children's Bill. This action step must be amended in accordance with the decision regarding that chapter. (60) DPLG and sector departments, which already help local governments with insufficient capacity to draft IDPs, should assist them in the prioritisation of basic infrastructure services for areas where the most dire need is felt. Lead institution: DPLG. Secondary institutions: LG (implementation); DWAF* (basic water services); DME (basic energy services) New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost: nil. Recurrent cost: minimal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
