Mega Boost for All Early Childhood Education Centers

Early Childhood Education Antigua St. John's - Over eighty preschools, daycare centers and creches are set to benefit from the single largest effort ever to provide these centers with age appropriate educational literature and educational toys.

This is part of the Government's thrust to radically modernize the delivery of early childhood education
 
The Ministry of Telecommunications, Science and Technology and LIME have collaborated on the HEART project, and one of the components of HEART is designed to contribute to the radical shift from "child minding" to educational development.
 
As Government prepares to train hundreds of early childhood educators and caregivers in the delivery of effective early stimulation, the Government has begun equipping the preschools and day care centers with the necessary tools to ensure that the children in these centers are exposed to much more education development in those early years.
 
Minister of Telecommunications, Science and Technology, Hon. Dr. Edmond Mansoor, says that both the Ministries of Education and Telecommunications have continued a collaboration program that has already resulted in early childhood centers receiving iPad tablets and broadband Internet.


 
"These iPads will help the early childhood educators. The children, however, need to have direct experience with the world in order to make sense of and learn about it. They learn about people and the world by playing with toys. Playing is important to children. It is the way they practice growing up. Toys are the tools children use in play. Puzzles and blocks help in the development of their muscles. Games and books assist in their social development, and crayons, paints, clay and paper help in their creative and intellectual development", declared Dr. Mansoor, who is a physician.
 
"The Government is ensuring that no child is deprived of early childhood education, especially children from vulnerable families who are at risk. So every, I repeat every, early childhood center will this coming Monday afternoon, receive a wide range of art and craft supplies, educational and table top toys, charts, puzzles and activity books, stationery and a white board. This is historic for Antigua and Barbuda, as Government is providing those important tools to ensure the educational development of toddlers," Dr Mansoor added.
 
Preschools, daycare centers and creches that wish to ensure that their center is registered to benefit from this component of HEART can contact the Ministry of Telecommunications at 725-9314. The allocation of these educational and developmental tools takes place at the ICT Cadet Training facility on Monday, June 02nd at 5:00 p.m. sharp.

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! Brethren & Sistren, we as people of African descent must keep them Honest & Respectful to US and our History on this Rock!

These people have absolutely no respect for the Majority People of African Descent. This is the ICT Minister and by extension a black GoAB who have daily exhibited black disorientation, decenteredness and lack of agency.

CA can justifiably say it reprinted GoAB’s Press Release in its Entirety!

A Luta Continua!

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! SlyThatGuy said The Good Hon ICT Minister only helping out the Ailing Minister Of Ed. in her time of Need.
Cool Ruler was more strident having listened from a far to the Crusader Son of Barters exclaimed that All the Sons & Daughters of Poor Boys & Pilgrims, Crusaders & Saracens Quote:
especially children from vulnerable families who are at risk.
would be saved by the ICT Minister's Intervention and receive their heavenly reward of either milk and honey or 77 virgins.

Let the Congregants Chant Amen! Said Mr. Byam: Quote:
The Ecclesiastics tell us that, these beautiful innocents, despite their circumstances, retain their spiritual resilience and fresh outlook; with joy and contentment they love their enemies and dream of a better world (with All Achieving While All Ah Thieving!)
Tenman, ever the researcher brought out, charts, reports & numbers.
In 1834, A&B had 29,131 African souls of which 4327 were under the age of six and a smattering of free coloureds. In 2011 the Scatterlings of Africa had grown to 74,018 People of African descent, 786 Mixed (Black & White), 3,225 Mixed (With whom ? Only the Good Lord knows), 2,330 Hispanics (How Interesting? Didn't some say they were the Antiguan Coromantees & Maroons, others Wadadli Garifunas of Antiguan African, Arawak & Taino Breed, others of Nelson Breed and others Antiguan Falashas lost in San Pedro? ) 750 Don’t Know (neither fish nor fowl).

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! Morris the Officer and a Gentleman complemented with, Where is the Strategic Plan and 2014 Budget Imperatives with Tactical Operations to Achieve the Objectives? Is this Shoot, Fire Aim?
Fnpsr the republican patrician was most emphatic with “Lets fix the little things first with RWE.”
Fresh Water, Gripe Water, Pipe Water, Water Lock Off or whatever was so annoyed that he hurled spit balls at the Bust shouting “all ar u duh a pi$$!”
JFII again reminded that this news article was taken word for word from GoAB’s Press release and should be seen for all it was worth in “The Medium Is The Massage” and given that it all came under the auspices of the Arab Trader, there were psychological issues for the 95% (88% which they would have you believe) people of African Descent. Could they not find one Child in our own image?
Dessalines, ever the Haitian Hero remembered Toussaint and said:Quote:
to be innocent though, is not always to be ignorant of the facts that girls and boys get lost, or have to live in the ghettos, slums, Bairros Africanos or on the street, or are sold as slaves. Some would suggest that innocence and ignorance are not the same thing – someone can be aware of all the unfairness, tragedy, and sadness of life, and still remain innocent.

Notes From A Native Son Of the Rock! Absoultely no historical referent Point. “Child Minding”. The Parentheses do not provide the cover. Please don’t patronize us and kill us with kindness.

Dig IT having accepted after some 5 yrs that My friends, this is not a Peoples Charter...it's more of IMF Charter. Was in no mood for further of The Medium Is The Massage Bamboozlement, for further behavioural modification and attitudinal change in voter preference. He said I have seen it all and it is all the same.Quote:
My mother bore me in the southern wild, And I am Black, but O! My soul is white; White as an Angel is the English child: But I am Black as If bereav’d of light. The Little Black Boy by William Blake.
For A&B’s youth wishing to further delve into the subject of Innocence VS Ignorance you are directed to Vanderbilt University’s English 274 Honors Course: http://williamblakeandenlightenmentmedia.wordpress.com/2012/01/27/innocence-vs-ignorance/
The Raven asked, why do you not see the Hon Minister’s Goodness?
Tenman suggested that the Minister & The Image Moulders familiarize themselves with the work of Dr. Mamie Phipps Clark & Kenneth Bancroft Clark in the 1940’s & more recently by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
Meigo Man, a Trader Of Renown in Africa & the Diaspora, replied “Because Every Deal Is A Steal!” Who Is the Reseller of the Hardware & Software? Who is The Service Provider For Maintenance & Operations?

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! Scorpion passing by asked ‘Nansi if he wanted a ride on his back across the polluted waters of Perry Bay rather than running the gauntlet amongst the Higglers, Hucksters, Bus Drivers, Limers, Gamers and Bargain Centre. Anansi, from his position in front of the Bust, now eating a sugar apple and drinking some sour sop juice with a loud laugh which immediately woke the residents of Eve’s Garden exclaimed “Is this a Trick Question of Innocence Vs Ignorance? The scorpion replied: “Is Joke Ah Jokin!”
Skyewill that Incorrigible Dutty Foot could not let this go by: “Operant Conditioning” he shouted!
JF!! Replied that the ICT Minister schooled in Medicine and Practiced in IT had analyzed the attitudes of the children from the Middle Passage and recognized that the first symptom to be treated was how they saw themselves and the second was what they aspired to be.
The people of The Book say: Quote:
Foreigners sap his strength, but he does not realize it. His hair is sprinkled with gray, but he does not notice. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shall be no priest to me:
This ICT Minister once again with silver spoon foot, or is it crocodile foot in mouth, uses language that makes a mockery of what helped the people of A&B to survive & thrive since 1634.

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! The Discourse at The Amofah Market at the Bridge began on a high note with the question of Innocence and Ignorance. Anansi sat in a corner like little Jack Horner eating a ripe mango. A Coromantee from The Sherkerly Mountains was beside herself. Where is the Good Hon Dr. Minister of Education? Another Maroon in a Gruff Voice mimicking the Good Hon. Minister of Agriculture, Fishery, the Environment & Lands replied that she was much too busy “Child Minding” in Potters waging a rear-guard action with the “Dean" of students of St. Georges "School Call In" University to attend to Quote:
Over eighty preschools, daycare centers and creches ... set to benefit from the single largest effort ever to provide these centers with age appropriate educational literature and educational toys. Minister of Telecommunications, Science and Technology, Hon. Dr. Edmond Mansoor.
A Saharawi Berber who had just arrived noted that since 750 AD with these Traders it is not Form Following Functions but Functions Following Form Quote:
As Government prepares to train hundreds of early childhood educators and caregivers in the delivery of effective early stimulation, the Government has begun equipping the preschools and day care centers with the necessary tools to ensure that the children in these centers are exposed to much more education development in those early years.
