KUCHING: Early education provided by Tabika Kemas can bring about positive attitudes and instil a culture of knowledge among children.
And participation in extracurricular activities and talent-based programmes can leave a positive impact in the long term, thus becoming a guide before they step into the real world of schooling.
Meradong assemblyman, Datuk Ding Kuong Hiing made these observations while officiating the Tabika Kemas Sarikei Children’s Potential Day yesterday.
“Pre-school plays a big role in educating children to read and count until the child enters the real world of schooling.
“Nursery not only makes schooling more enjoyable but also plays an important role as one of the main thrusts for producing high quality human capital.
“This early-stage education also acts as a template to ensure children grow up on the right track,” he said.
Ding said education is the most important aspect of life in addition to being one of the important agendas in national development.
“The seriousness and ability of our children to master science can raise the dignity of themselves and the nation,” he said.
The competition was participated by Tabika Kemas of Betong, Saratok, Tanjung Manis, Igan, Sarikei and Julau.
Also present were Deputy Director of Early Childhood Education Kemas Sarawak, Roselind Wilson Laing and Assistant Skills and Communication Officer Kemas Sarikei, Bangie Mujab.
