Samoan early childhood learning workshops

A target of the Pasifika Education Plan 2013-17 is to increase Pacific participation in early childhood education (ECE) from 86.8 percent in 2012 to 98 percent in 2016.

To assist in reaching this target the Ministry of Pacific Island Affairs will be holding a series of workshops to promote the benefits of ECE over the coming months.

The first workshop will be held at East Tamaki Ekalesia Faapotopotoga Kerisiano Samoa Church, 104 Dawson Rd, East Tamaki on Saturday 16th February 2013 at 10am – 12.30pm.

The workshops will cover these topics:

. The benefits of early learning to your children

. The types of service provision available

. Information from local ECE providers on their service in your area

. Enrolling your child

. Financial support – key government agencies will provide financial assistance information for parents.

. Setting up an Early Childhood Education service.

Please RSVP by Friday 8th February to Silone Faoagali at the Ministry of Pacific Island Affairs on 09 2653229, or via e-mail.

About The Author

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
