Early Childhood Education
We know from research that a quality early childhood education is crucial for children’s learning and development. With this in mind, we are focused on ensuring our Pacific children get the best start in life.
Working with the Ministry of Social Development, we held workshops for our Pacific families with young children not participating in any form of early learning.
Around 100 families were represented at various workshops where we outlined the benefits of a quality early childhood education for their child, and explained where financial assistance can be accessed. We also referred these families to other government agencies for support and advice, where needed.
Nearly 100 young Pacific children were referred to, and enrolled into, early childhood centres as a result of these workshops .
