 About the Department

The study and interest in the field of pre-school education are the most important indicators of the advancement of communities, and are part of the

criteria on which the civilization and nations are measured. Also, the interest in the field of childhood is an urgent necessity imposed by modern scientific and technical challenge that developing nations face, and the children represent important human resource that nations depend on to complete their future missions and to transform their civilization to the coming generations. To cope with the developments occurred in the field of early childhood in the world, Sudan issued a decree in 1990, which states that pre-school education should be considered an essential stage in educational calendar in order to meet early childhood needs such as care, education and upbringing. In alignment with this decree, the board of faculty of educationin 2004 recommended the establishment of special department for pre-school education. Notably, the specialization of pre-school education was embedded under the umbrella of family science and health and clinical nutrition. However, the department of pre-school became independent in 2010.
