 The RCP Process

Roving care giver with infant

  • Rovers make weekly visits to RCP family homes (each lasting 20 to 45 minutes) to engage children in early stimulation activities in the presence of their  parents/guardians.

  • The stimulation is guided by the Highscope Curriculum which includes play activities to support the development of the child’s motor, perceptual, emotional and cognitive skills,.

  • Parents are required to be present during the activities and are encouraged to continue these activities between Rover visits.

 Parenting Workshop
  • Parenting workshops are held in support of identified needs (e.g.., effective parenting advice, child safety issues etc.)

  • Rovers submit written home-visit reports to their RCP Supervisor; the programme develops with this continuous assessment and feedback.

  • RCP Supervisors and Rovers are engaged in ongoing Early Childhood Developmen (ECD) training.

  • Rovers report and escalate any issues to RCP Supervisors, who in turn report to the Programme Manager.
