The UCT Educare Centre is committed to the provision of quality educare.

We aim to create an environment that encourages an awareness of issues relating to discrimination on the basis of race, gender, culture or disability.

The curriculum is designed to reflect the diverse backgrounds from which children at the Educare Centre are drawn and to value these differences.

We encourage self-esteem and confidence in children and build on their innate potential.

We are strongly committed to countering the culture of violence prevailing in South African society, and are actively implementing non-violent practices.

The UCT Educare Centre encourages children and staff to work, play and learn together in a spirit of co-operation rather than competition.

Policies of consultative management ensure participation in all aspects of the centre's work.
