Ensuring Quality Early Childhood Education Provision: The Indispensable Role of Parents in the Effutu Municipality of Ghana (Published)

There is a notion that children are the hope of the future of a society. This has led to Early Childhood Education becoming the focus of debate at all levels of government. However, the benefits emanating from Early Childhood Education cannot be realized on its own without a key component of the indispensable role parents play. Consequently, this ethnographic research employed a focus group interview to collect data from 14 participants from the Effutu Municipality to answer the research questions formulated to guide the study. The study found that if parents actively involve themselves in the education of their children, it can build a rapport between them and the school to be informed about what goes on in the school about their children so they can continue at home. This can increase their children’s happiness at school, and possibly encourage them to participate in school activities. However, the study found that the parents were faced with challenges ranging from financial constraint and their lack of education to wrongly prioritizing their children’s education which potentially prevented them from living up to their parental expectation. From the findings, it is recommended that parents should re-orient their perception and attitude towards early childhood education and consider it to be a critical stage in their children’s educational ladder and subsequent general development as human beings. They should also visit their children’s schools whenever need be, and they should have time for their children and be interested in their education.

Perception of Stakeholders on Sports Facilities Provision and Maintenance in Selected Universities in South West Nigeria (Published)

This paper examines the provision of sports facilities, and maintenance in selected universities in South-Western Nigeria. Data were collected using a structured questionnaire which was administered on sports men and women. Personnel responsible for maintenance of sports facilities in the universities were also sampled. The study incorporated all the fifteen sports featured at the Nigeria University Games Association (NUGA) competitions. Three federal universities were purposively selected because these have facilities for all the fifteen sports and have hosted national and international sporting events. Data obtained were analysed using frequency distribution, percentages and mean response analysis. The findings revealed that facilities for the physically challenged to access and make use of the facilities were inadequate. A reasonable number of respondents (60%) were not satisfied with the number of sanitary facilities. Most of the respondents (70%) were not satisfied with the quality of the locker rooms. The study found the mean downtime of sports facilities to be 264 hours, with the main reason being insufficient funds. The study therefore recommended adequate funding as a key factor for improving the response rate to maintenance requests which in turn would reduce maintenance downtime.
