Inspectors report improvements in early learning

| 08/04/2009

(CNS): According to recent government inspections standards in early learning provision have improved in local schools since last year. During February and March staff from the Early Childhood Services unit have been undertaking annual inspections in all Pre-schools and Day Care Centres across Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. “Overall, the quality of provision has improved since last year,” said Kate Marnoch, Head of Early Childhood Services.

She said during the inspections staff observed saw happy children that were busy playing, painting, singing songs and being active learners. “Children are receiving healthy meals, they have daily access to well resourced out door play areas and staff are planning interesting activities for the children to do during their lessons.” 

Marnoch said that managers and staff had welcomed the inspections and were proud to show the unit staff around their facilities and said that most establishments had made the necessary changes since last years inspection. These changes included a range of repairs and improvements, such as installation of an additional bathroom, installing shade structures outdoors, repairing broken fences and employing more staff to maintain the correct staff/student ratio. 
 “Overall we are very pleased with the level of co-operation received from Pre-school and Day Care owners, managers and staff especially since in addition to conducting inspections we are here to provide a range of support services and assistance for the benefit of pre-schoolers,” added Marnoch.” As such, we look forward to continuing the productive working relationships that have been developed between the Early Childhood Services unit and the Pre-school and Day Care service community.”
