They were given a piece of land by the tribal authority under Chief Kekana, to start the centre due to unsafe conditions that children were expose to in Mashemong.

The centre was one of the identified ECD centres by the South African Congress of Early Childhood Development (SACECD) in 2010 to participate in the training and development of vegetable gardens at the ECD site. Thusanang Day care centre started with 80 children and to date the centre has managed to enrol 133 children and employ 12 staff members of which 6 of them are teachers.
