The Association for Formidable Education Development (AFED) on Saturday, June 25, said it would continue to train and retrain teachers to enhance the quality of teaching, especially in nursery schools.

Mr Ikechukwu Ubah, Chairman of AFED, Ikorodu District III, spoke on the group's objective on the sidelines of the training organised for 112 nursery school teachers from 25 schools in the district.

Ubah told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ikorodu that the training was meant to improve the quality of teaching at the nursery school level.

He said that the association had realised that nursery school teachers were not putting in their best in teaching the children, thus affecting the standard of education.

The association chairman said that more of such training would have a great impact on the education sector, especially at the nursery level, which is the foundation of education.

Mrs Feyi Durojaiye, Proprietress, Jehovah Jewel School, Ikorodu, said that a faulty educational foundation would adversely affect a child.

Durojaiye said that the training, which was the first she had attended as a school owner, had exposed her to the wrongs being practised by the nursery school teachers.

She described the training as a wake-up call for all educationists who had attended the programme to go back home and put things right in their schools.

"This training is not just theory, but also practicalised; and there is a connection between what is taught and what we see in schools.

"So, it is left for us to go home and do our homework to improve the teaching of the young and dynamic minds."

Mrs Feyikemi Ushie, Proprietress, Lifewell Private School, Ikorodu, said that teachers should also be challenged to know that they were not working for school owners, but themselves.

She said that the moment the teachers put in their best in their work, they would surely reap the fruit of hard work.

Mr Ademuyiwa Ashimolowo of Mary Gold Montessori Centre said that the objective of the association was to train no fewer than 2,000 nursery school teachers on effective teaching.
