Cargills Foundation to implement their Early Childhood Education Programme in the Central Province

Cargills Foundation will be expanding their ECE (Early Childhood Education) programme to the Central Province with the on-boarding of 50 preschools including 1500 children, from the districts of Kandy, Matale and Nuwara-Eliya.

The ECE programme aims to provide children aged 3-5 an opportunity to develop and enhance their knowledge of the English language, through exposure to basic concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM).

The programme was launched in Kandy at an event attended by the Central Province Governor Lalith Gamage, Gamini Rajarathna (Chief Secretary, Central Province), Premasinghe (Education Secretary, Central Province), Gunathilaka (Director of Early Childhood Development, Central Province) and teachers of the 50 preschools. The teachers received a starter pack comprising books, teacher guides with day-wise lesson plans and guidance on introducing a new language in an entertaining way that makes learning fun. Cargills Foundation has already implemented the ECE programme in the Western and Uva provinces. Plans are underway to implement the programme in all provinces across the country.
