Alona M. Belarga | Daisy A. Rosano | Antoniette D. Cortez



To upgrade preschool teachers’ knowledge and skills essential to organizing, managing, and/or teaching, a government-sponsored training for 90 teachers coming from Region 6, 7, and 8 in April to May 2011 was conducted. Findings revealed a significant increase in the participants’ knowledge in the teaching of early childhood education. Holistic concepts were learned and professional and personal skills were developed by the participants who viewed the training as excellent. Misconceptions were also addressed. Indeed, the training enhances the capability of the teacher participants and this made them more confident in handling preschool children.
