Abstract/Notes: Under the heading Jinka... "Laid out with wide streets and benefiting from a mild climate - which has encouraged an exuberant growth of mango and other trees - Jinka is one of Ethiopia's most pleasant small towns. -- with an airstrip, petrol station, Montessori kindergarten, and bank, it also serves the surrounding countryside with a large and colourful Saturday market. This market is well worth a visit, as is the South Omo Research Centre (still under construction in early 1994) with its museum. The centre is situated on the Bulat hill, overlooking the town with a spectacular view, and will be a resource for anthropologists, tourists, and townspeople." Jinka's best hotel is the Orit, right next to the airstrip. The Omo Hotel across the road is a close second. If it's the season for fruit, ask for fresh papaya juice. [Camerapix 1995, p 177-180]

Play and Creative Drawing in Preschool: A Comparative Study of Montessori and Public Preschools in Kenya

Abstract/Notes: When children enter preschool or kindergarten, they often seem to bring a spirit of wonder, great curiosity, and a spontaneous drive to explore, experiment and manipulate playfully and originally. Learning environments have been perceived to have the dual role of promoting as well as killing creativity. This has been attributed to the fact that as a child progresses through school years, teaching and learning become more dominant as play and self-exploration are stifled. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between play and creative drawing in Kenyan preschool children. A comparative study of the Montessori and the traditional public school system was carried out 48 preschool children between the ages of 4 and 6. Half were enrolled in Montessori while the other half in public schools Kenya. Through a qualitative design by the use of the Test of Creative Thinking Drawing Production (TCT-DP) (Urban & Jellen, 1996), and Rubin’s (2001) Play Observation Scale analyses were carried out. Independent sample t tests, Pearson product moment correlations and stepwise hierarchical multiple regressions were computed to determine whether interactions and differences in social play, cognitive play and creative drawing performance were apparent between Montessori and traditional public preschools. Statistically significant results were obtained indicating that Montessori children engaged in cognitive play more than public preschool children and had higher scores on creativity than public preschool children. In addition, age differences in social play as well as in creativity scores were found. However, no gender differences were apparent in social play, cognitive play or in creativity scores.
