By Paul Tajuba for Daily Monitor, Uganda – October 5, 2015 The Madrasa early childhood training model is the best in Uganda, a senior ministry of Education official has said.

Dr Yusuf Nsubuga, the Director of Basic Education, said while launching the Madrasa Early Childhood Development Institute (MECDI) and its first graduation ceremony that the model was equipping children with life skills and not necessarily helping them to cram things as other nursery schools do.

The Madrasa Early Childhood Programme Uganda (MECPU) is run under the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF).

“Our children are learning to know, to do, to be and to live together. It is the best practice in early childhood development,” Dr Nsubuga said at the institute’s offices in Mengo, Kampala, last Friday where 188 pre-school teachers graduated with certificates in early childhood handling.
