by Fernelle Neptune

The Bureau of Health Education within the Ministry of Health, Wellness and Elderly Affairs recently conducted health promotion assessments at a number of early childhood development centres in an effort to promote healthy behaviours amongst young children.

In response to the assessments, the department has started implementing a series of training sessions to address the needs identified.

The training sessions seek to build the capacity of early childhood development providers in their approach to ensuring the health and wellbeing of the children in their care.

Family Life Educator Laurentia Maylor spoke on the need to undertake this workshop.

β€œThis came about as a result of a need that exist in the region. In discussion with the providers, certain issues arise and we realize there is a gap and the need to fill the gap and hence the reason the workshop came on stream. This workshop we are hoping that at the end of it, that providers will have the skills as well as the education to better meet the needs of those young children in their care.”

Maylor says other early childhood development providers around the island will also gain the necessary knowledge and skills to assist them with ensuring healthy practices in children.

β€œThe hope is for us to implement this workshop in other regions throughout the island and by so doing we think we will have that standard information so everybody will build that capacity to better do what they doing in terms of working with children.”

The training focused on areas such as nutrition for preschoolers, small kitchen gardening, stress management and vaccination, to name a few.

  1. Hopefully the funding that is going into this training is not to bombard these young kids about LGBTQ+P sexual education like they do in satanic liberal America, Briton and Canada! There is NO WAY these learning institutions should force a young boy to wear a skirt or a dress or panty in school without their parents consent or knowing smh. Kudos to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for erradicating that battyman mental programming from elementary and middle school throughout the state of Florida. Who vex lose! You know our society has gone down to the bowels and recesses of hell when they’re teaching our children in elementary school thats its ok for boys to kiss and have sexual relations with other young boys and for little girls to have lustful relationships with other little girls! A sick, corrupt and twisted world we now live in! Fyah burn down BABYLON!!!! πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯

  2. Please dont put my son in no skirt with yall satanic liberal american lgbtq+p rainbow 🌈 alphabet colors agenda nonsense yall are emulating from mystery babylon. God coming for all yall twisted minds just like He is coming for BABYLON if yall start teaching kids this perverse lgbtq+p nonsense!
