Presbyterian Women's College of Education launches early grade students association to enhance early childhood education

Early Grade Students Association inaugurated at Presby Women's College of Education

An Early Grade Students Association with the aim of building the capacities of student teachers and empowering them to contribute to the transformation of early childhood education has been inaugurated at the Presbyterian Women's College of Education.

It is the aim of the association to provide a foundation for students, nurture their talents and foster their overall development.

Additionally, it is to create an environment to support the students' innate abilities, promote their social and emotional growth, and cultivated a love for learning.

In an interview with the Daily Graphic, the Principal of the Presbyterian Women's College of Education, Rev. Dr. Mrs. Grace Sintim Adasi, said that education is not solely about acquiring knowledge but also the key that unlocks a brighter future.

"We will organise workshops, competitions, and interactive sessions designed to enhance their creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities," she stated.

Rev. Dr. Mrs. Adasi emphasised the importance of collaboration between the faculty, organisations involved in early childhood education, parents, and the wider community to address challenges associated with early childhood education.

A representative from the SDA College of Education in Asokore, Stella Akosua Kayi highlighted the responsibility of educators to adapt to the changing educational landscape and nurture students' curiosity, empowering them to become lifelong learners.

"In the quest for educational transformation, we must not overlook the significance of early grade education. The foundation we lay during these formative years serves as a bedrock for future learning, growth, and success," she emphasised.

She stressed that student-teachers play a unique role as facilitators of knowledge, role models, and mentors.

To effectively mould young minds, she encouraged them to embrace innovative technological methodologies, incorporating technology and interactive tools in their teaching to engage and captivate their students.

Dr. Davis Mawuena Aweso, the Head of the Education Department at Presby Women's College of Education, expressed  the belief that the association will demonstrate the institution's commitment to nurturing and empowering its young learners.
