Greenlight Reinsurance Ltd. recently donated CI$8,500 to the National Council of Voluntary Organisation’s Miss Nadine’s pre-school for art and educational supplies.
Miss Nadine’s pre-school, houses up to seventy-three students from 2-5 years of age.
The curriculum consists of various activities that broaden students’ early learning experiences through language, arts, mathematics, and sciences.
NCVO expanded the school in September 2007 by adding two classrooms and five teachers/teacher’s assistants, thus expanding the service to more children and ensuring the school’s continued compliance with the Early Childhood Education regulations.
The Pre-school’s mission is to provide subsidized pre-school to deserving children as just over half of the school’s operating expenses come from school fees.
A large amount of donations, such as the one given by Greenlight Re, are necessary in order to continue to run the program.
‘It is thanks to organizations such as Greenlight Re that the NCVO is able to continue to provide a quality pre-school education to the children in Miss Nadine’s pre-school. Their generous donation has enabled us to purchase a large amount of educational supplies, teaching supplies and arts & crafts materials for the 2008-9 school year.’ stated Janice Wilson of the NCVO.
