An early childhood educator is lamenting the challenges associated with online learning for young minds.
Ms Salmon speaking on behalf of day care centers told Antigua News Room that “online does not work for young kids.”
She said the providers are facing hardships like rising rental costs utilities and cost of higher education with no income.
She said the ministry is not taking into account that online learning does not work for very young kids who learn through their 5 senses.
“They need hands on and movement to develop small and large muscles.”
Day care providers want the authorities to stop lumping them with primary school because they are different.
They want the ministry to take another look at its policy for children under 5-years as parents are finding it difficult to find places to leave the children when they go out to work.
