ABSTRACT

To upgrade preschool teachers’ knowledge and skills essential to organizing,
managing, and/or teaching, a government-sponsored training for 90 teachers
coming from Region 6, 7, and 8 in April to May 2011 was conducted.
Findings revealed a significant increase in the participants’ knowledge in
the teaching of early childhood education. Holistic concepts were learned
and professional and personal skills were developed by the participants who
viewed the training as excellent. Misconceptions were also addressed. Indeed,
the training enhances the capability of the teacher participants and this made
them more confident in handling preschool children.
