ABSTRACT The study is based on Untrained ECDE Teachers whose engagement were found to be influencing academic performance in the ECDE Centres in UasinGishu District. The study was prompted by the high rate of behaviour change observed among children after being subjected to the instruction sessions of the untrained teachers. Therefore it became necessary to research into the extend at which the untrained ECDE Teachers instructions impact on the children and some of the factors which negatively work against proper learning of children in ECDE Centres .. The study is developed in such away that established the interest of members joining the profession at the beginning or the initial years of their service. Researching into all this, it therefore required the use of comprehensive and appropriate methodology. A Case Study method has been used to unearth all the finding that were targeted in this field. Given the population that is in Early Childhood Development and Education Teachers in the Uasin-Gishu District, it was necessary that a comprehensive sampling technique be used here to enable fair and correct presentation of the views of all the teachers in the Zone. Multi-stage sampling technique became useful and the whole area has been subjected to produce the sample for the study. The Methodology has been supported by the use of structured interview as a tool for data collection. Since it was considered to be the most effective. The data analysis has been done and representation done using techniques that enable quick understanding of the finding. The finding clearly indicates the level of influence got from the untrained teachers as opposed to trained teachers. The benefit of trained teachers been highlighted. XI A major recommendation in the study is to the government to clearly formulate the policies that are able to motivate teachers hence they better they best as the practice in the field and in-turn reach out to more children. Some of the base issues to be components in policy formation are creation of a sole employing body to ECDE Teachers deliver while their mind is settled on the job they are doing. Recommendation is also given for more research to be done to qualify the finding documented hereby and appropriate action be taken by the Government to ratify its policies on Early Childhood Education in order to improve the quality of Basic Education which is her motto.
