By BBN Staff: This morning teachers in the Stann Creek District received their certification after completing training in Early Childhood Development (ECD) and Quality Friendly School Initiative (QCFSI).
A government release states that the training is designed to “strengthen teachers’ skills in order to prepare them to deliver the curriculum in a more effective and efficient manner…(which will)… provide opportunities and experiences for three and four year old children to learn in a safe, secure, comforting, caring, stimulating and multicultural environment for children of Santa Cruz and surrounding communities.”
Parents have also been a part of the project. The hope is for teachers and parents alike work to develop the children through child focused programs to “support a healthy, holistic child development.”
The release adds that “children will also be stimulated to learn to acquire developmentally, appropriate skills, concepts, positive attitudes, and values that will become the foundation for a smooth transition into primary school and their life cycle.
The ceremony was held at the United Community Primary School in San roman, Stann Creek District this morning. The program is being implemented by the Belize Social Investment Fund in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports.
It is being funded by the Government.
