VAN DER WALT, J.P. (Hannes); SWART, Ignatius  e  DE BEER, Stephan. Informal community-based early childhood development as a focus for urban public theology in South Africa. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.3, pp.01-16. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v70i3.2769.

This article highlights important dimensions of public theology and shows how the identified dimensions are relevant to the specific situation of informal early childhood development (ECD) facilities in a South African urban setting. The article considers the contributions and challenges of informal community-based ECD on the basis of research conducted in the Rustenburg/Phokeng area of the North West province of South Africa. It critically discusses the sociocultural discourses and legislation regulating ECD centres, by focusing on the constraints put on informal ECD service providers. It concludes by considering ways in which urban public theology should act to serve, strengthen and advocate this vitally important, yet informal, sector.
