Early childhood education centres gain popularity

SINCE the start of the early childhood program by Save the Children Fiji, it is evident that the project has been beneficial to informal communities in the West.

This was the message from organisation education manager Ruth Kiulamu after visiting the 11 early childhood centres in rural communities in the Western Division.

"I have only spent two months here so I don't have a standard because I had not seen the childhood centres before," Ms Kiulamu said.

"However, what the teachers and district co-ordinators told me was that there has been a very big shift to where they have reached."

She said the childhood centres in the Western Division had overcome a lot of challenges, one of the biggest being natural disasters.

"The centres now are very colourful and full of resources."
