Pre-School will become requisite to Elementary Level - Congress

Pre-school education will become requisite for elementary level once the bill pass the third and final reading in Congress. It means the the children will spend 7 years before they could go to high school.

Congressman Jaafar, the endorser of the new law said Pre-school education has been proven to be very important in a child formal education. Angara stressed that the bill is in consonance with the State’s policy
to provide equal opportunities for all children to avail themselves of
free and compulsory preschool education that effectively promotes
physical, social, intellectual, emotional, and skills stimulation as
well as values information to sufficiently prepare them for formal
elementary schooling.

After 3 years of enactment, all children will not be accepted in Elementary if they did not finished pre-school. DepEd will also be tasked to implement and supervise the new law. It will authorize the DepED to develop curriculum, prescribe necessary qualification for pre-school teacher, develop guidelines and standard. Salary of pre-school teacher is the same with the regular elementary teachers.
