Duha Early Childhood Development center on the move!


Duha ECD center is making progressive strides towards becoming a model ECD 

Center for Rwamagana District.  In our effort to promote the quality of learning, the 

class size has been reduced from 48 to 28 students in each classroom, which now 

allows teachers to address students’ individual learning needs. 


Elisaphane, REAP’s Early Childhood Educator, planned and coordinated the 

introduction of learning corners: Book corner, Numeracy corner, Language and 

Literacy, Arts and Crafts, Role play, Dress up corner and Construction corner. He 

also regularly trains teachers on how to better deliver the new competence-based 


Students are no longer tied to direct teaching for many hours.  Instead, they are 

now learning experientially through learning corners that develop thinking skills, 

psychomotor skills, language and literacy skills, and social skills. This improved 

learning environment keeps students engaged, concentrated, and focused. 

Duha is now exploring partnerships with the current with the Rwamagana District 

model ECD center, Teach Rwanda ECDs and other ECDs in the region to share 

practices, learn from one another and accelerate progress.
