A playground with a mechanical children`s carousel and seesaws is designed to motivate children to engage in activities and thereby improve their motor skills. The preschool was also stocked with other learning and playing materials, such as puzzles, balls, picture and color games and pull and push play equipment. This gives the school a model character for other communities and schools in the area and strengthens people`s awareness regarding the importance of making early childhood development a matter to be addressed by schools. Since educational success largely depends on teaching methods and abilities of teachers, 20 educators and teachers from Mepekope and the surrounding area were trained in early childhood development.
Early education as a chance for positive development
In order to ensure that the children are promoted age-appropriately the three teachers attended trainings together with another 19 teachers of neighboring villages. They were trained in promoting children using rhymes and songs and using the new didactical learning and play materials in the way to support the children’s motoric, cognitive and mental abilities. One of the teachers said that she was glad to be able to instruct the children better now. With the help of this early education already the youngest are prepared to learn reading, writing and calculating in school. The initial years are formative for children and an early education in preschools makes a significant contribution in facilitating their transition into elementary school.
