The sequential exploratory mixed-method design was used in this study. With this, the qualitative data was used to augment initial quantitative results. The sample size for the study consisted of 118 kindergarten teachers. The sample was selected from an accessible population of 168. They were selected using a systematic sampling technique. 8 teachers were selected for interview using the homogenous sampling technique. Questionnaires and interviews were instruments used to collect data for the study.
