The purpose of the study was to assess the contribution of physical facilities to the teaching
and learning in pre-schools in the Techiman North District of the Brong Ahafo Region of
Ghana. The study adopted descriptive research with a concurrent mixed method design.
Seventy-five respondents consisting of 60 teachers and 15 attendants were sampled for the
study. The study employed systematic sampling, simple random sampling and convenience
sampling techniques in sampling the participants. Questionnaire, interview and observation
were the research instruments used in collecting data for the study. Descriptive analysis was
the procedure used in analyzing the data. The study revealed that the kind of physical
facilities available to the preschool children were not sufficient to enhance positive learning
outcomes. It also reduces the level of absenteeism, changes in attitude and modifies
behaviour of children appropriately. It was concluded that insufficient and appropriate
physical facilities in preschool seem to hinder children’s effective learning. Some of the
challenges identified to be hindering children’s learning were inadequate instructional
materials, furniture, uncomfortable atmospheric conditions in the schools such as
dilapidated buildings, unsafe water and unavailability of toilet and urinal. It was
recommended that, Techiman North District Assembly and the District Education
Directorate should take cogent steps and efforts to provide appropriate physical facilities
that would promote teaching and learning. Again, the head teachers of the schools should
practice maintenance culture while the directorate provides teaching and learning materials
for both the teachers and the children.
