Pre-school education popular

RURAL and urban areas in the Western Division are interested in establishing early childhood centres.

Divisional education officer West Lorima Voravora said it was encouraging to note communities were keeping education a priority.

"We are working very closely with donor agencies to ensure that we build kindergartens or early childhood centres in areas that need it," he said.

"We are also working very closely with the Early Childhood Education unit within the Ministry of Education and they have managed to identify and allocate funds for assistance towards this project and support given to early childhood teachers."

Mr Voravora said another positive outcome of the Education Ministry's efforts to introduce early childhood education was its support of kindergarten teachers.

"They are salaried staff now for the first time this year and this is an initiative that has come from government."
