The new year has begun by welcoming Justine Davies, an early childhood education specialist from New Zealand to our team at the Ba Futuru preschool. With Justine’s experience in developing successful early childhood program’s, teacher training and parent education we are excited to expand our knowledge and services. We have recently settled many new children into our early childhood programme. The children are now comfortable with our regular routines such as hand washing and brushing their teeth on arrival and have regular healthy meals.
Q is a four year old girl who has sponsorship and has been attending Ba Futuru for two years. Q has developed into a confident and capable student who has learnt to write all the children’s names in the class, she can also count to 50, understands English and can sound out each letter – she has learnt to read. Q will be attending primary school at the end of the year and she is academically, physically, socially and emotionally prepared.
Ba Futuru focuses on the skills children need to succeed at school through holistic play-based programmes and responsive teachers. Our priorities are supporting community needs through inviting contribution and empowering all learners, offering a sense of ownership and inclusion. We are very excited to be implementing the new Timor-Leste early childhood curriculum.
Our preschool at Ba Futuru currently caters for over twenty students, half of them community children who need scholarships urgently. These children are from very low income homes and at risk of neglect and abuse. More than ever the children need scholarships so their education can continue. Please sign up for a small monthly donation and give a child the right to education. Thank you for support of the Timorese children.
