This workshop is organized to help build a strong rapport and camaraderie between NEA and the newly appointed pre-school EEAs. After attending this workshop, an EEA will be equipped with general knowledge on environmental issues, which can assist them in injecting environmental elements as part of the learning activities for the pre-schoolers.
Various environmental education activities help in children's character development as they learn to appreciate the world around them. Environmental activities can also encourage their creativity and at this young age, they will be able to learn and understand faster.
So hurry and sign up for the Pre-School EEA Workshop and if you are still not an EEA, be one today!CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP
