According the request from the community people in Tropeang Kropeu village through Rolea Bier DOE and Kompong Chhnang POE officers, in June 2018, Caring for Young Khmer (CYK) conducted the survey on location and learn their need and cooperation for opening the new village preschool in the village.
CYK found that there are a lot of children, but no preschool in the village and the community people, especially commune council seem very cooperative for its operation and management. And the school principal provided the space to build a classroom for preschool in Teuk Hot Primary School. So, CYK decided to support and open a preschool for them in 2019.
With the financial support from Nexus Co., Ltd. in Japan, CYK provided fund to build one preschool class and toilet that cost total US$5,350. The construction work was started under the control of preschool supporting committee members on 9th September and completely finished on 8th November 2019.
From 18th to 27th October 2019, the teacher training was conducted by CYK childcare advisor and childcare team at CYK office. And the On-the Job-Training (OJT) was continued at Beoung Kyang community preschool from 28th October to 8th November and 2019.
On 25th November 2019, the new village preschools at Tropeang Kropeu village, Teuk Hot commune, Rolea Bier district, Kompong Chhnang province were officially opened and about 43 children were registered and have chance to get early care and education for their mental and physical development.
