• Jolly Phonics is a fun and child-centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic sounds.

• Programme rolled out last year, other counties in the process of rolling out the system are Taita Taveta, Tana River, Kwale, Lamu, Nyeri and Meru.

Coast counties are embracing the Jolly Phonics mode of teaching to enhance reading and comprehension in Early Childhood Development Education.

The mode which was adopted from Europe was piloted in Kilifi county and has already led to a tremendous improvement to comprehension in PP1 and PP2 learners.

Speaking in his office on Monday, Education and ICT executive Gabriel Katana said more than 4,000 teachers from both public and private ECD centres have been trained on the system.
