How does your policy include and value the trained ECE teachers and knowledgeable organisations already working in the sector?
TOP values trained teachers as educational professionals, and is therefore committed to fair pay for ECE teachers, in-line with kindergarten and schools. TOP also advocates for ECE teachers to be employed as professionals within schools, to build the social and emotional capacity in the early primary-school years. ECE teachers will also be integral to building community capital, as ECE services integrate with communities.
