More than 10,000 PreSchool Teachers Needed by DepEd

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

The Department of Education (DepEd) of the Philippines will be needing more than 10, 000 pre-school teachers for its universal kindergarten program in 2011.

Bouyed up by the 19% increase on its annual budget, the DepEd is set to implement its universal public kindergarten program for 5-year old Filipino children, a headstart in preparing them on the rigors of schooling, on a much bigger scale. In line with this program, pre-school teachers will be very much needed.

Currently, there are 29, 615 preschool teachers in the country, of which only 2,299 are of permanent tenure. These teachers will surely be undermanned to handle 2.5 million preschool children this coming school year, 2011 - 2012.

So this year, DepEd targets additional 700 permanent teaching positions and 10, 000 contractual preschool teachers.

Interested preschool teachers who can help these preschoolers towards their education should always check out the DepEd website for further information.
