The schemes of service which was compiled by the Council of Governors (CoG), the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and the Ministry of Education was submitted to the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) for evaluation and grading.

Currently ECDE teachers are employed by county governments which pay varying salaries. Most counties employ ECDE teachers on contract and with poor pay most of them paying less than sh. 12,000 monthly.

 

 

The employment of ECDE teachers moved to the counties after TSC lost the battle to employ the teachers, in court.

 

Lack of clear structure for employing ECDE teachers has led to some counties to exploit them. Most counties call the teachers “caregivers” during recruitment.

The poor pay has resulted in shortage of ECDE teachers as some teachers opt for other lucrative jobs in other sectors.

 

 

However in a recent resolution, governors agreed to implement ECDE schemes of service for teachers which will see salaries harmonized.

In the resolution the Council of Governors shared with all the county governments the approved ECDE teachers schemes of service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The governors also agreed to allocate more resources in the financial year 2022/2023 for implementing the schemes of service.Resolution of the Council of Governors on ECDE teachers

 

 

 

Following the governors move, the Senate Standing Committee on Education has convened a meeting with the Council of Governors on 11th and 12th February 2022 to address the issue.

 

In a letter dated 27th January 2022, signed by the Clerk of the Senate, the meeting is scheduled to take place in Kiambu on Friday this week.
