It was with much sadness that we said a fond Lauren and Sindifarewell to Lauren Le Roux who has been the Principal of Philile ECD Centre’s for the last 9.5 half years. Lauren will be returning to her hometown of Cape Town and starting a new season of her life there.

In 2008, Lauren was instrumental in recruiting the 8 children that commenced their pre-school education at Philile Hillbrow. Lauren then went about appointing women from the local community to be cooks and cleaners. These ladies where subsequently given the opportunity to receive formal education in completing a 3-year NQF 5 qualification whilst practicing as ECD Practitioners. Hundreds of children have been impacted by Philile ECD Centre’s and Lauren ensured that the children were well-behaved, disciplined and ready for “big school” when graduating from Philile.

Lauren – your legacy will live on in the lives of the children and the staff. Thank you for your hard work, loyalty, commitment and passion for all that you did! May the next season be blessed in every way as you continue to impact the lives of those around you.

As long as poverty, injustice and inequality persist in our world, none of us truly rest.”  Nelson Mandela
