Bursaries for early childhood students

Yesterday, 8 May, the Minister of Education, The Hon. Diallo Rabain joined the Child Development Programme in presenting two Bermuda College students, Kayla Hollis and Laree Talbot, with a bursary award in the amount of $500 each to support their continued studies in the Early Childhood Education field.

The Minister of Education commented, “It is very encouraging to see our young people pursuing degrees in such a critical field. I have high hopes for our next generation of educators when I come into contact with exceptional students like Kayla and Laree.”

Union Square Productions, in partnership with Child Development Program, hosted the Early Childhood Symposium on 16 March, 2019 where the Bursary Awards were first announced. There were over 100 attendees which included Kayla and Laree. The theme of this year's symposium was ‘Laying a strong foundation. Teaching the whole child.'

The symposium also provided an opportunity for students to increase knowledge of early childhood development from birth to five years of age.
