An agency raises awareness of the importance of preschool

Kinshasa, August 10th, 2022 (CPA).- The Agency for the Promotion of Education (APE) is organising, on Saturday August 13, at the Petit Lutin school complex, a big preschool party, as part of raising awareness of importance of this cycle, announced its national coordinator, Michel Otto in an interview on Tuesday with the CPA. This activity aims to make the public aware of the role played by preschool in the supervision and education of children before school age. According to Michel Otto, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the educational model comes in three forms of pre-schooling, namely: nursery school, community space for early learning and the pre-primary class. Care of pre-school children (3 to 5 years old), he argued, is carried out in one of three forms, which can be public and private, while scientific research claims that everything is plays, in the school education of children, before the first six years. The coordinator of the APE affirms that the appropriate care of children, from an early age, can have a significant impact on their development and the continuation of the school career. « A good preparation of children for school life reinforces the level of learning, while significantly raising the income from their work at the start of working life », he noted.
