The Chikabiddy program curriculum was specifically designed and developed to address the following: (a) a lack of specific guidelines or regulation from the Government on early childhood education (b) the fact that the majority of teachers being employed in this sector do not have specific qualification, training, and skills to handle preschool children (c) the fact that text books and workbooks currently available in the market do not have the relevant strategy nor the detail for skills development (d) most research indicates that 50% of a child’s cognitive development is over by the age of 5 and experiences of a child in the early years (under the age of five) shape what the child will be like as an adult.
