A man living with disabilities in Antigua and Barbuda has made it possible for a child to attend preschool this year, after providing him with a scholarship for the upcoming academic semester from September to December 2022.
Young Antiguan & Barbudan Entrepreneur, Youth Advocate, and Founder & President of Little People of the Caribbean Juante Kirby signed an Agreement with the Tender Heart Preschool & Daycare allowing one student to attend the September 2022 Semesters at Kirby’s newly started business “Little Tornadoes Party Rentals” expense.
” Numerous studies from the past few decades verify that children the ages of three and four benefit significantly from receiving prekindergarten education. Such advantages result in a variety of aspects, such as improved mathematical abilities, strong language skills, and higher literacy rates”, Kirby said.
He said some parents due to the economical hard times, are finding it difficult to afford early childhood education.
“In our democracy, every child should have an equal opportunity to obtain an early childhood education, regardless of his/her parent’s station in life or financial means. It is with humility I wish to offer Congratulations to the student and her Parents I was pleased to provide this scholarship. I look forward to great things from you shortly,” he said.
