Giving children a good start in primary school


KnowHow Early Learning is a mobile and tablet  course application to facilitate self-guided group learning amongst early childhood practitioners and teachers.

KnowHow Early Learning aims to support young children to be ready for school and schools to be ready for young children. The intention is to empower untrained community ECD practitioners and primary school teachers to use interactive, holistic teaching methodologies. KnowHow Early Learning promotes collaboration between ECD centres and primary schools. KnowHow Early Learning is a key component of the ‘Early Learning Kiosk’ strategy of the Roger Federer Foundation.

KnowHow Early Learning is implemented across five Southern African countries, promoting synergies between the countries. KnowHow Early Learning is an activity-based, multimedia course, integrating the use of African Storybooks for young children.

The course is an open educational resource with a Creative Commons licence.
