The main aim of this project, supported by the Cairn Trust is to provide children with safe, stimulating and resourced environment in which to start their educational journeys. It does this in three main ways, namely:
Some of the key strategies for achieving the the project objectives is as follows:
Teachers in pre-primary often receive little to no training and are vastly underpaid, resulting in de-motivated, ill-prepared and under-supported teaching staff. In rural areas, teachers continue to deliver lessons using traditional techniques and pupils learn by rote and repetition.We train teachers to deliver interactive, well planned lessons that respond to the needs of individual pupils. In so doing, we create a culture where children can play as well as start their development by providing an inventory of local toys and learning resources, including games, puzzles and musical instruments.
