Teachers will be from Savaii and the main island Upolu. There are 105 Aoga Amata in Samoa and they are affiliated to the National Council of Early Childhood Education who is hosting us.

Some of the topics offered at the fono include Intentional Teaching, Te Whāriki and the curriculum and in what way it supports our view of children and how this influences how we teach.
