Professionals will present on critical stages of children’s formative years at The Early Years’ third annual seminar

Persons involved in early-childhood education will have the opportunity to learn crucial information about children’s formative years on Saturday, April 15, at the American University of Antigua (AUA).

On that day, an early-childhood education and development group, The Early Years, will be hosting its third seminar, between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

Host Priscilla Joseph outlined the focal points of the slate of panelists that will be presenting at the event, which has been dubbed the “Critical Periods in Development Seminar.”  

The professionals will be looking at three distinct stages of development: from the social and emotional, to the progression of language, and then to the critical versus sensitive periods.

Ingrid Daniel, will be honing in on the critical period of a child’s life, while Bahamian professor Dr. Anastacia Lewis will focus on teachers’ and parents’ role during a virtual presentation on leadership development.

A teacher by profession, Joseph reports that persons from Africa and other parts of the Caribbean joined the last seminar virtually.  She is therefore pleased with the growth of the event and is upbeat about the potential for Saturday’s seminar.

The host notes that a question-and-answer segment will be held after each speaker presents, plus a raffle will be drawn at the end of the seminar.

She says it is not too late for individuals to register for the educational initiative. The fee is $20, and persons can call or WhatsApp their email address to 734-4305 in order to get the registration link.
