Staffing: Emphasis is placed on staff development and hiring qualified staff experienced in learning through play concepts and resources, such as using objects children can explore and use in learning. One Step Learning Opportunities Centre helps teachers find and create play materials that are low-cost and locally produced. The role of teachers and adults in the room is to provide children with active and playful hands-on experiences that help foster and enrich learning.
Negotiations have been initiated with post secondary institutions to assist with staff development. Early childhood learning students and programs are being invited to use the daycare as a practical site for studies virtually and/or in person. Network challenges and skilled technology staff are being pursued for solutions.
Parental and community: One Step Learning Opportunities Centre recognizes that children learn and apply their developmental skills at home and in the community as those are the places children spend the larger part of their time. Therefore, parental and community engagement activities are frequently encouraged in various settings so that stakeholders can support and take active roles in the children’s daily learning. The Charity garners support for parents and the community to recognize the benefits of play and sponsors’ contributions.

Together we make the difference and impact. We need you. Quality early childhood learning for rural children to develop lifelong skills is about collaboration and partnerships. You are invited to celebrate an Africa landmark globally in Ghana. Put your social values and strategic gift giving legacy on a cause to advance early learning globally at the Centre in Entumbil, Ghana. The strategy in short is that the philanthropic founders have donated a building and space for the purpose. Collaboration with people and organizations are important to attain the noble charity cause, that has made a big positive impact for generations to come in the community. Peoples’ contributive actions are key to Making Early Childhood Learning Affordable. Learn more in Updated 2020 – 2024 OSL Strategic Plan. Your action will help so that the governance elements for the noble, humble, cause will continue to happen.
One Step Learning Opportunities Centre’s goals align with Canada’s international assistance priority objective to empower rural children, especially girls, to advance literacy, prosperity, gender equity in the community and more. Majority of Entumbil preschool children are girls mostly cared for by their impoverished mothers. Nurturing children in the community is a collaborative generous goal from various perspectives.
As part of OSL stewardship roles, the interests of sponsors and partners are consciously accounted for and recognized in print, media, and community activities. There are multiple opportunities in the rural town for collaborators to improve the quality of life and advance all stakeholder goals. It is a win-win opportunity for all stakeholders. There is room for donors, volunteers, research, capital projects, as well as operational needs like teachers and staff salaries, educational materials, electronics, sanitation, landscaping, and cash. Playground structures and a van are in high demand. We need your donation which you can designate to any of the elements of the early childhood learning cause. All donations are receipted for your tax saving options.
