Child Stimulation Month celebrated!

Every year the Ministry of Education sets aside March as Child Stimulation Month. A calendar of events has been prepared and issued to the various pre-schools on the island. The celebration started on Tuesday March 1st under the theme “Parents, educate your child”, with an opening parade along the main streets of the island.

The month is set aside and the activities are designed with the intention of raising awareness about the importance of early childhood education. Throughout the month, the students of the various Pre-Schools will be observing and hosting events such as Flag Day – where the children learn the importance and significance of the colors as wells as the symbols on the Belizean flag; children’s talent day, sports day, culture day and visits to the various public service offices to name a few.

ABC Pre-School had a special visit from Barney the Dinosaur on Friday, March 4th for Hug Day.

On Wednesday March 9th, grandparents and pre-school students got a chance to share in a bonding experience of creating art.

Brighter Tomorrow Pre-school had a wonderful time with the kids as they visited the San Pedro Public Library on Wednesday March 9th for story reading.
