Today we went to a local community service centre (Zeng Jiaping community public service centre) at Changsha City. The early childhood development (ECD) centre is on the third floor of this community centre.
The volunteers’ skills and children’s development are obviously better than at the two ECD centres we saw yesterday. I joined them with a game to point out body parts. It was difficult, but children could catch up with the volunteer, and were giggling. I could hardly catch up with the volunteer! There was not much time for us to talk with the children and parents, but I guess these children come here a lot. Otherwise, they could not catch up with the game.
The local partner is really serious about this project. Lots of people joined the introduction, and people were busy walking here and there for co-ordination, and to get things in order. I can see that they want to show us the best side of their centre. We very much appreciate their efforts.
