Twenty six women undergoing early childhood development course

Twenty six women, on Monday, began their training at First Lady, Mrs. Sandra Granger’s Early Childhood Development Workshop.

The participants, upon completion of the three-component workshop, which includes CPR training, will receive certification from the Board of Industrial Training (BIT).

Mrs. Granger said that while the workshop provides official certification, it can also help improve parent-child or caregiver-child relationships. “It’s very important to us as women to be able to stand on our feet economically, because it has a bearing on our social and other interactions… That is why I have been… very firm in making sure these workshops… must be certified… It will teach you how to approach your child differently… Also, if you have a child with special needs… you can understand that the child is different and needs particular care. [They are] different, not stupid, not slow, not ‘hard ears.’ Their minds just work differently,” she said.
