On Saturday 10th September a group of Level 4 students and their facilitator attended a one day ECD Training Conference in Kloof, near Durban. It was organised by The Love Trust, our social franchise partner. Attending the conference were other Level 4 students from other Love Trust Teacher Training Centres in KwaZulu-Natal Province.
Some of attendees come from deep rural areas but all shared the same enthusiasm for teaching pre-school children. The programme included input from experts in the use of music, literacy training, storytelling and gross motor development for pre-school children. It was not long before all the participants were enthusiastically joining in with singing, dancing and playing simple home-made drums and instruments.
All our students thought the day was worth attending and hope there will be more such occasions for them. Few have had previous experience of attending a conference such as this one.
