50 Toddlers of Happy Valley are going to be the lucky recipients of the informal settlement’s first crèche. The crèche is going to be opened on February 12 by the City of Cape Town.

The Happy Feet crèche is going to be inside a donated Wendy house and is positioned inside a safely fenced property.

“The créche is going to be staffed by four early childhood educators who have received training from the City of Cape Town.

Hundreds of Happy Valley residents work in the Blackheath industrial area and the need arose for a safe haven to house their preschool children while their parents are at work,” says Councillor Pieter van Dalen.

Van Dalen says the city believes that the education of children from an early stage could empower them to become great leaders as Happy Valley is described as a high crime rate area which includes social crimes like child rape, teen pregnancies and HIV/AIDS and TB infections.
