About this title


This book highlights partnerships between parents and teachers in Early Childhood Development Education in Kakamega County, Kenya. In ECDE, parents and teachers have to work closely in matters of curriculum development in order to lay a firm foundation for the child. However, the author argues that parents seem to leave this responsibility to teachers and even when they get involved in their children’s schooling, the extent of their involvement is not clearly defined. Truphena advocates for ECDE programs that involve parents to enhance pre-school pupil academic achievement. She establishes that both teachers and parents hold positive perceptions towards their involvement in ECDE curriculum development. The author recommends adult literacy programmes for pre-school parents, early childhood education parental awareness program, gender balance of pre-school teachers, free pre-school education, a scheme of service for ECDE teachers in Kenya and employment of Quality Assurance and Standards Officers with a knowledge base on ECDE. This book is highly recommended to pre-service and in-service ECDE teachers, parents, ECDE educators and researchers in Kenya and elsewhere in the world.
