Commendation of an early childhood educator

Published:Friday | November 15, 2019 | 12:48 AM


I am an unrepentant patriot. I love Jamaica, and every chance I get to sing the praise of our people, and there are many, I must make a public declaration of it.

Today, it has to do with a very important area of our people’s ­academic prowess. Early childhood education is important and we have mastered the art.

It is with this in mind that I am publicly recognising a teacher whose impact on two- and three-year-olds is astounding. I speak of none other than Ms Marlene Francis of Bright Spark Kindergarden in Portmore, St Catherine.

She is stunningly brilliant with these toddlers, who, after three weeks, are making intelligent ­sentences and arguments.

This is amazing!
