Sparrows Child and Youth Care Centre (CYCC) has been operating in Tarkastad since 11 April 2000, taking care of 71 children between then and July 2017. One of these children graduated as a Social Worker in 2012.
The centre employs one full‐time Social Worker working with the children in residential care exclusively. She is supported by six childcare workers and an auxiliary social worker, who are supported by the centre director, a projects manager and a research, development and training facilitator.
Kabouterland Early Childhood Development centre is an extension of the services Sparrows provide and employs two full‐time practitioners who have not completed their training in Early Childhood Development.
