Pre-School

Since the 80′s, the preparatory schools have been important components of children’s education. As both parents are forced to seek gainful employment to increase family income, a comfortable arrangement for their pre-school children especially toddlers is sought to compensate for their absence during the day. As such, a number of pre-school in both public and private sector continue to proliferate in almost all areas.

As of 2000, there are 8 public pre-schools in the municipality of Carmona.In addition, public elementary schools also offered preparatory schooling. Classes conducted by the various day care centers run by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Rural Improvement Club Center (RICC) also complement these pre-schools.

In the private schools, the teacher-pupil ratio appeals most to parents because teachers assure them of a certain degree of close attention to their pupils.

In terms of classroom facilities, with standard 50 pupils in one classroom, the existing classroom-pupil ratio in public elementary schools in the municipality pegged at 1:55, is very much below the standard.
