Limited resources and poverty have impaired the proper development of educational services in Chesterville. There are presently seven preschools in the area, which between them enroll approximately 500 children. Considering they serve an estimated 4,500 children under 6 years of age (Stats SA, 2001); it is clear that this region is under-served in terms of preschool education and that further investment and development is required.  

Vukukhanye believes strongly that quality early childhood education is critical to the development of individuals, and ultimately impacts on the socio-economic progress of communities and our country as a whole. In order to make a significant impact in this area Vukukhanye is facilitating the formation of a network of Creches within the Chesterville area, focusing on workshops dealing with training, resources and support.

The schools involved are: Bamba Izandla, Zamokuhle Creche, Mazenod, St Barnabas  Nabantwana Creche Siceluthando Educare Centre and Ekuthuleni Educare Centre.
