Background and Rationale

Local Government is mandated to build, maintain and ensure equitable access to community infrastructural facilities, notably, Community Centres, Day Care Centres and Play Grounds. To date, the Ministry has built 12 Day Care Centres which are each catering for the needs of 30 to 50 children.

 One of the priorities of The Strategic Plan (2018- 2022) of the Ministry relates to the decentralization and harmonization of public services. This would imply that early learning and care services should be appropriately located within district areas to serve the community. This is in line with the Seychelles Framework for Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) which places emphasis on quality standards for the provision of functional spaces in early childhood settings. 

 The Day Care Centres constructed by the Local Government are rented out to Day Care Operators and are managed by the District Administration Office.  They provide early stimulation opportunities for children, they promote community engagement, and support working parents.
