Abstract: It is overtly important to note that early childhood education is the starting point for children as citizens and their general development is a basic foundation for subsequent levels of education; hence, a lot is expected from their teachers. The study aimed to assess whether teachers’ conditions of service could have any significant influence on their job performance and productivity in public early childhood education in Bwari LGA, Abuja. To achieve the objectives of the study, the study raised two research questions and two hypotheses. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. A simple random sampling technique was used to select a sample of24 head teachers, 168 teachers, and 32 educational officials from the targeted population. Descriptive statistical tools were used: mean (  ) and standard deviation (S.D). The hypotheses were analyzed using mean  ) and standard deviation (S.D ) on a five point Likert scale. Findings indicated that a conducive and serene school environment and regular and periodic staff training and development enhance teacher job performance and productivity in public early childhood education. Hence, it is recommended that enhancing and securing the school and learning environment and adequate regular training programs are important for teachers’ productivity.

In essence, early childhood education (ECE) includes crèches, nursery, and kindergarten, while primary education indicates education given to children between ages 610 years and above.
