Today we dropped in a kinderland childcare unannounced after visiting brainykids. After a quick tour, we proceeded to a nearby playground where the PN teachers brought the 8 kids for 'lesson.'
I did not observe any teaching.
The Filipino teacher was trying to push swings while holding phone & camera. She also supervised play. later she took some pictures. I can't tell if she checked phone or camera but her eyes were on the kids.
The Chinese teacher sat on bench, texting & making phonecalls for the entire 15-20min. she made no attempt to help at all.
Are teachers allowed to use phones during teaching hours?
