||This measurement tool was developed by the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention (CJCP) as part of its early violence prevention project implemented in Walmer Township, Port Elizabeth. The tool is intended to assist Early Childhood Development (ECD) practitioners with evaluating the effectiveness of programmes implemented at ECD centres. The tool is designed to be used by lay-people, who have been orientated to the tool, its usage and interpretation.
The tool is not intended as a diagnostic tool for the purpose of assessing the development of individual children. It is intended to provide an overview of the developmental capabilities of the children in order to ascertain if the ECD centre’s programming is achieving the desired results.
