Praises for former Education Minister for foresight in selecting early childhood education project


The Cabinet congratulated former Education Minister Michael Browne for his foresight in selecting early childhood education project funded by the Maria Holder Trust.

The building in Buckleys will serve Swetes, All Saints and Buckleys.

The Cabinet made the decision that this and every early childhood education school will be provided with free internet, adequate furnishings and qualified teachers.

Both public and privately operated schools will equally benefit from such offerings based on need; the object is to close the gap between those parents whose earnings are severely limited and may not be able to afford schools that offers qualified teachers, internet or adequate furnishings.

Meanwhile, Government Crèches are to be turned into endowed preschools in order to encourage learning between 0 and 5 years old before the infants go off to Primary schools.

Five members of the Early Childhood Education Department were invited to Cabinet to share their expertise and to provide the Cabinet with alternative policy choices for achieving the equality that is being sought.

        • All you guys do is COG COG ……JUST LIKE YOUR LEADER: you are devoid of ideas.

          I can remember that it was A Salome first started listing all the accomplishments of the UPP and then LO and BEHOLD, Shazam, you started cogging the idea. You guys are not original and can’t think for yourself.

          Get out of the lane and open Antigua to endless opportunities.

          • @Stand Tall like the pawpaw tree on Algernon Watts 26 ACRES of waste land.

            yeah you just confirmed that you are “ANNA SALOME”

        • You forgot YIDA, E-Books, Michael Freeland’s Custom Money, The plus $3M Forgery, Odebrecht involvement, Cornell Benjamin and Nigel Christian. Remember to include the others.

    • Yes, the accomplishments of the ABLP Government is based on world-class leadership, and that is why the people overwhelming support them. Unfortunately none of the UPP candades are “world-class”. Indeed, Single Pringle is sill the best they got.

  2. Kudos to the Hon DR. MICHAEL S. BROWNE for his hardwork and foresight indeed 🇦🇬 🇦🇬 🇦🇬

    The children are our future!

    • 🗣Hi badmind/envious. Humbly acknowledge the fact that there is now an EARLY CHILDHOOD RESOURCE CENTRE thanks to Dr. The HONOURABLE MICHAEL BROWNE of ALL SAINTS WEST.
