SAVE the Children Fiji will increase the number of kindergartens funded through its Early Childhood Education program as part of its expansion plan in the north for 2013.

Save the Children Fiji district co-ordinator north, Samuela Tabakau said this included ensuring pre-scholars received quality education from their teachers.

"For SCF, this means more training for preschool teachers in order to better their knowledge in the fields they are serving in," said Mr Tabakau.

"We will be focussing on developing rural kindergartens to bring them up to par with the kindergartens in urban areas," he said.

Mr Tabakau said SCF was focusing on uplifting ECE in rural areas to ensure their pre-scholars accessed quality education as well.

"We are also encouraging our preschool teachers to further their know-how through courses offered at our tertiary institutions apart from the trainings that we run," said Mr Tabakau.

Vuli Taumada Sishak and Early Childhood Education program project manager, Barbara Ratabacaca said the Safe and Grow Smart workshop for preschool teachers was timely and important.
