This workshop was conducted by the Pre School development Centre in Killinochchi with the financial assistance of an international non-governmental organization FORUT and Tamil Rehabilitation Organization, TRO sources said.

Provincial Education Ministry Secretary Mr.Thiagalingam said powers to administer pre-schools have not been devolved to provincial councils. However North East Provincial Education Ministry has appointed assistant directors of education to supervise pre-schools in the province, he said.

Pre-school education plays a vital role in the development of a child, said Tamil Rehabilitation Organization Planning Director Mr. Lawrence Christy addressing the workshop.
