Convinced of the importance of preschool education, the BMCE Bank Foundation for Education and the Environment has been building its first preschool structure in the province of Nador since 2000. This pedagogical concept was then generalized throughout the Medersat.com network.
The Ministry of National Education has now made preschool education a top priority, and the BMCE Bank Foundation is supporting it through several programs:
Therefore, following the guidelines of the emergency plan of the Ministry of National Education which places preschool education at the top of its priorities, and in response to this strong demand, the BMCE Bank Foundation has responded to the call of the public authorities through the following programs:
In response to a felt need on the field, the BMCE Foundation has initiated the design of a preschool pedagogical kit. Developed with the help of national and international experts, its objectives are multiple:
The centers provide ongoing training for educators in the Medersat.com network and can accommodate teachers from the Ministry of National Education.
The Foundation has built centers in Nouaceur and Nador and has equipped them with furniture, computer equipment, teaching materials, and a documentary fund.
Recognizing that pre-school education is one of the essential conditions for academic success, the BMCE Foundation proceeded with its implementation in all schools of the Medersat.com network starting from 2001. The Foundation took the initiative to design a specific, adapted and operational pre-school educational toolkit, which defines a clear educational policy, establishes theoretical and practical references, ensures coherence in the organization and pedagogical functioning of pre-school education. It enables the evaluation of the effects produced by the teaching and ensures communication with various partners.
Under the direction of the BMCE BANK Foundation, several national experts contributed to the development of this toolkit. Once its pedagogical and didactic model was established and all of its contents were produced, the toolkit now takes the form of a charter that encompasses a philosophy, goals, and modalities of organization and functioning.
Beyond these materials, it is a set of principles for action and organization in the classroom, for the evaluation of learning and the training of educators.
The creation of this pre-school toolkit is a concrete response to the request of the Ministry of National Education to promote accessible, modern, and sustainable pre-school education.
