Governor Susan Kihika is making strides in fulfilling her commitment to strengthen Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) in Nakuru County. In a significant move towards equitable service delivery, the Kavilila ECDE Center in Waseges Ward, Subukia sub-county, is set to commence operations in January. This initiative includes the provision of a dedicated teacher, age-appropriate furniture, and participation in the ECDE Feeding Program.
The decision to operationalize the Kavilila ECDE Center follows a fact-finding mission led by the County Executive Committee Member for Education, Zipporah Ngugi. The assessment aimed to evaluate the state of Kavilila Primary School, established in 1995 but still awaiting registration by the Ministry of Education.
CECM Ngugi pledged the County Government’s collaboration with stakeholders in the Ministry of Education to expedite the registration process for the school. She emphasized the importance of community support and encouraged increased enrollment in the ECDE section. Ngugi highlighted that Governor Kihika’s support would not only benefit young learners but also play a vital role in reviving the overall status of the school.
Accompanying CECM Ngugi was Hon. Peter Kang’ethe from the office of the Governor, Subukia and Rongai Sub County ECDE Program Officers, the Ward Supervisor, and a representative of the area MCA. The initiative signifies the county’s commitment to expanding and enhancing early childhood education services for the benefit of its residents.
