  • Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) teachers are currently employed and compensated in a variety of ways, with some receiving a stipend rather than a salary.
  • According to the county chiefs, providing annual capital grants of Sh2,292 per learner will allow them to effectively engage teachers on the terms specified in the scheme of service.

Governors have asked the exchequer for grants of up to Sh4.3 billion per year to address teacher remuneration issues in pre-primary schools.

Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) teachers are currently employed and compensated in a variety of ways, with some receiving a stipend rather than a salary.

According to the county chiefs, providing annual capital grants of Sh2,292 per learner will allow them to effectively engage teachers on the terms specified in the scheme of service.

“There are currently 1,916,690 learners in ECDE centers, which translates to an annual grant of Sh4.39 billion,” said Nyeri governor Mutahi Kahiga, who chairs the Council of Governors (CoG) education committee.

The Senate is looking into reports that most counties pay their pre-primary school teachers less than the recommended minimum wage.

LATEST NEWS :



The Regulation of Wages Order 2018 sets the basic minimum monthly wage for Nairobi and other cities at Sh13,572 inclusive of housing allowance.

Former municipalities and town councils are expected to pay ECDE teachers a minimum monthly wage of Sh12,522 for all locations, and Sh7,240 for all others.

According to CoG data, county governments have employed 42,457 ECDE teachers, 13,502 of whom are on permanent and pensionable terms, and 28,955 on three-year contracts.

Counties hire ECDE teachers through County Public Service Boards (CPSB) in accordance with the 2018 ECDE Teachers’ Scheme of Service.

Budgetary constraints, on the other hand, have made it difficult for the devolved units to pay teachers efficiently in the face of rising living costs in an economy reeling from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

For the full implementation of the scheme of service for ECDE teachers, the devolved units face a Sh2.08 billion annual budget gap.
