Interaction is a need, desire and vital necessity for each child says Qelemumu Primary School headteacher Kelera Liga.

She was the chief guest during the clos­ing of the Preschool Week celebration that hosted 15 preschools at Qelemumu in the Macuata province yesterday.

Mrs Lagi said quality early childhood edu­cation and care was everyone’s responsibil­ity.

“Early childhood is being seen as the first stage in the process of producing a stable, well prepared workforce for the future,” she said.

“It is a foundation for long term success in an increasingly competitive global market.

“It’s me; it’s you and it’s us who can make a healthy, quality, safe and responsible com­munity.”

The headteacher shared a few tips with teachers and parents to help them under­stand the theme of this year’s preschool cel­ebration: Quality Early Childhood Educa­tion and Care is Everyone’s Responsibility.

“Firstly, let us all try to speak good and en­couraging words to our children,” Mrs Liga said.

“In the past eras, quality was seen more as a luxury than a necessity.

“Today quality matters and it matters a lot. It is what everyone wants to offer and what everyone wants to have.

“Children have inquisitive minds and we cannot deny that. Stop ignoring them and don’t shut them up when they ask ques­tions.

“We live in the digital age hence it is very important we guide them.

“I would like to thank parents for nurtur­ing your children and teachers for bridging the home and school culture.”

The furthest school that attended this pro­gramme was from Druadrua Island in Mac­uata province.
