Ambassador Godwin Apple has called on the Cross River State government to unify early child education in the state by adopting the Reggio Emilia educational approach.

Sen. Stephen Odey (PhD) state Commissioner for Education.

This approach, which originated in Italy, focuses on a child-centered curriculum and promotes the active involvement of parents and the community in the education process.

Ambassador Apple believes that adopting this approach will bring about several benefits for early child education in Cross River State. Firstly, it will provide a more holistic and comprehensive education for young children, as it emphasizes the importance of creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. By encouraging children to explore and express themselves through various mediums, the Reggio Emilia approach promotes a well-rounded education.

Additionally, Ambassador Apple highlights the role of parents and the community in this educational approach. By actively involving parents in their children’s learning journey, the approach creates a strong bond between home and school, leading to improved educational outcomes. Involving the community also allows for a broader range of resources and support for early child education.

Furthermore, the adoption of the Reggio Emilia approach would provide a standardized framework for early child education in Cross River State. This would help ensure consistent quality across all early child education centers in the state, promoting equal opportunities for all children.

Ambassador Apple urges the state government to invest in teacher training and infrastructure to effectively implement the Reggio Emilia approach. He believes that this investment will lead to a brighter future for the children of Cross River State, fostering their development and preparing them for the challenges of the modern world. By unifying early child education through this approach, the state government can lay the foundation for a more inclusive and prosperous society.
