preschool children


Since 2018, UNICEF is providing technical and financial support to the Government of North Macedonia to enhance the professional development of teacher competencies for early childhood education. This includes the introduction of a national programme promoting the social and emotional development of pre-school children and developing a dynamic national platform for teachers' training, peer support, and mentoring through professional learning communities. To date, UNICEF has trained and supported 70 per cent of the country's pre-school teachers to integrate social and emotional learning in their classroom.
