Need for concerted efforts to develop children - Minister


Rev. Alexander K. Nyantakyi, Birim Central Municipal Director of Education, Presbyterian Schools Unit at Akim Oda, has observed that the development of children could not be accomplished by mothers and teachers alone, but the concerted efforts and support of stakeholders in the society.

Rev. Nyantakyi, also the Minister in-charge of the Trinity Congregation of Akim Oda Presbyterian Church, made the observation during an interaction with the Ghana News Agency (GNA), at Akim Oda in the Eastern Region.

He said when parents and guardians recognised the rights and privileges of the child, they could seek the services of trained early childhood developers, such as day care attendants.

The Minister urged stakeholders in education to take active interest in the training of children.

He called for frequent programmes to be introduced in the municipality to provide opportunities for many untutored Day Care Developers and Attendants, to receive professional training.

This, according to him, could benefit attendants to make good use of the acquired knowledge and experience to help make childhood education delightful and enjoyable.
