Vusumnotfo’s ECDE Programme is designed to build upon and strengthen community initiated ECDE efforts, using the community preschool as the focal point.  Some of the key aspects that the project will focus are strengthening preschool Teaching - in preschool and life skills topics as there are no minimum qualifications or competencies for preschool teachers in Swaziland, nor is there a national ECDE training system for teachers In addition, the project will promote effective parenting - in the basic concepts of how young children develop. Finally, the project will strengthen Preschool management and support for improving infrastructure by concentrating on in-service training for community preschool teachers, many community preschools operate in either borrowed or mud & stick structures.
