The official, who spoke to the press during the First National Forum on Early Childhood Education, said that the goal will be to increase education modules and the number of kindergartens and pre-school centres, as well as implement an alternative low-cost education model for early childhood (TUPPI).


Awareness of the various players, the responsibility of Education Ministry technicians, the sector’s provincial branches, municipal administrations, families and communities on the importance of early childhood education and care are also on the agenda of the governmental department.


In turn, the secretary of State for Pre-School Education, Pacheco Francisco, said that the number of children from 0 to 6 years who benefit from school attendance is still disproportionate, she said, making an allusion to the objectives enshrined in the 2018-2022 National Development Plan for the Education Sector.


According to the official, the investment in the initial years presents greater social benefits and high rate of economic return, both in individual terms and  collectively.


For two days the specialists will discuss, among other topics, "National policy and advocacy on early childhood education”, “Strengthening early childhood education (challenges and perspectives)" and "Information management, education in early childhood.”
