Kindergartens begin enrolment

FORTY-TWO Early Childhood Centres (ECE) are looking to start their enrolment drive for the new academic year.

The drive is being co-ordinated by Save the Children Fiji's Vuli Taumada Shishak project.

SC Fiji CEO Chandra Shekhar said the organisation had been conducting pocket meetings for ECE centres with the community in the Central, Western and Northern divisions to encourage parents to enrol their children there.

He said the organisation was looking forward to building up and encouraging families to take advantage of the facilities provided by the centres.

The organisation's goal is to maximise the number of children who enrol with slightly more than 20 children in each centre.

"Children are children and have to be involved in outdoor games in addition to activities like painting, singing and drawing," he said. "We need to blend ECE with good strategic teaching guidelines and fun activities."

Mr Shekhar said the organisation's focus was on quality education by providing teachers with quality training.

"This is achieved through continuous training and workshop for teachers, regular Community Education Committee (CEC) meetings and regular visits by SC Fiji educators in monitoring and mentoring their work amongst many other activities," he said.
