ONE NURSERY SCHOOL OPENED, ANOTHER COMING SOON (Pt 1)
Chief Education Officer, Karen Best, said the staff for the nursery at Oldbury had already been secured and the Ministry of Education was eagerly awaiting the hand-over of the school.
Mrs. Best pointed out that research showed that individuals and societies could benefit greatly when countries invest in early childhood education. “We know that exposure to well-organised instructional programmes can enhance the emotional, social, and cognitive skills of young children.
She lauded The Maria Holder Memorial Trust, saying it was cognisant of the importance of providing opportunities for the ‘right start‘ in education for young students.
