All delegates participated in an open discussion session on The ECD qualification continuum- articulating level 3 through to level 7 as well as the Project for Inclusive Early Child Education. This gave delegates an opportunity to enquire about how the changing ECD landscape will affect them. This is an exciting time in ECD and Ntataise has been actively involved in these new developments which promote professionalisation of the sector.

The conference ended with a talk by Lebo Mashile who captivated the audience by sharing what a positive impact teachers have had in her own life and how they inspired her to use her gifts.
