Ministry Activities

Teacher Training Internship

The UofN Preschool works in conjunction with the School of Early Childhood Education (SECE) a teacher training program runs by the University of the Nations. During the internship phase of teacher training, the interns are placed in the classrooms for their practical experience to learn about classroom management, observations, child case studies, and various techniques in being a teacher. These interns who are also from various cultures will contribute to the learning experience for children. The interns are being trained to assist in the multiplication of educational programs for young children locally, regionally and internationally. At the conclusion of internship, they will help in the development of a new educational center in a predetermined location.
