UCT Educare Centre's dream of more space could be realised, following a visit by vice-chancellor Dr Max Price and his senior management team on 14 October. Price, accompanied by deputy vice-chancellor Professor Danie Visser, chatted and played with the young ones, and held discussions with centre leadership.

This was part of his programme of weekly visits to departments to get to know the university better. "The centre is an important function that supports staff and students by enabling them to work and study, despite having kids," he said.

Marilyn Petersen-Sanders, co-ordinator at the centre, said one of the challenges for the centre was the lack of space to accommodate special classes and students' outreach programmes.
