8 send documents

EIGHT out of 11 early childhood centres in the Western Division have submitted their documents to the Ministry of Education with the hope of becoming established teaching centres.

Save the Children Fiji education manager Ruth Kiulamu said once the centres were established, they had nine months to meet the criteria set before becoming registered and recognised.

"Once they are recognised, they get salary grants from the government," Ms Kiulamu said.

"The salary grant is not the whole pay cut for the teachers.

"About 80 per cent of the teachers' salary is covered through the grant and communities put in the remaining 20 per cent."
