World Education Co-Sponsors Early Childhood Education Program in Ghana
July 10, 2017
World Education co-sponsored the first-ever project work exhibition at Adentan Community Kindergarten School in Ghana. The exhibition showcased the talent and potential of 100 pupils from 17 public and private Kindergartens in the municipality and was based on the children’s environmental studies curriculum. The public display included poems, songs, dances, and recitals.
Durowaa Amponsah-Mensah, an early child coordinator of the Ghana Education Service, Adentan Municipality, stated, “Children have a strong potential to explore and discover. The project approach builds on the natural curiosity of the child. It enables them to interact, question, connect, solve problems, communicate, reflect, and much more. This kind of authentic learning extends beyond the classroom to their homes, community, nation, and world at large.”
The exhibition provided a holistic education for the children, allowing them to build self-confidence, learn social skills, and develop learning dispositions, all of which help build a foundation for formal education.
