Be creative, teachers told

CREATING a conducive environment for preschoolers to learn from is paramount, some early childhood education (ECE) teachers in the Northern Division have been informed.

In encouraging the teachers during a workshop at the Education Office in Labasa last week, FNU lecturer Ufemia Camaitoga said it was also crucial for them to work closely with parents in terms of enhancing the learning capacities of the little ones.

"While it's important for you to work with the Education Ministry, you also have to work with the parents because without them, there are no children and without children, there are no ECE teachers," she said.

"Being an ECE teacher is a big responsibility because you are playing that motherly and fatherly role to children from different backgrounds. You have to observe a working standard in the ECE sector.

"Children are unique and for us to lure them into staying in school, we have to be creative in what we teach them."
