The Prime Minister and the Minister of Education Applauded

The Cabinet applauded the Prime Minister and the Minister of Education for placing Early Childhood Education as a top priority in the coming five years. The first of these centers was built in Buckleys, using funds from the Maria Holder Trust, organized by the previous Minister of Education/Parliamentary Representative for All Saints West. Similar centers are to be constructed in Bolans, Grays Green Community, and in several densely populated communities in and around St. John’s; similar centers are planned for St. Phillips and the Northern corridor. The research has shown that children who have exposure to formal learning between ages 2 and 5 are in a better position than those who have not. It also appears that they are less likely to drop-out of school in their later years and to become wards of the state.
