CATEGORIES OF SUPPORT
WHOLE CHILD EDUCATION AND EFFECTIVE FAMILY COMMUNITY SUPPORT
Holistic Education for children is imperative at all levels with an emphasis on early childhood education. There are two critical components to making children successful adults. The first is introducing children to education that strengthens them spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. The second is the village to which the child belongs, whether by birth or by circumstance. Winsome Wishes for Kids is committed to guiding both components, especially equipping teachers and schools with information through teacher training and family/community support.
QUALITY EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND OPPORTUNITIES
How does Winsome Wishes for Kids hope to facilitate quality early childhood education in Jamaican schools? It is through their primary focus on teacher training. As it stands the early childhood sector in Jamaica is critically in need of partners that will expose them to the best and current early childhood and special needs information that they can implement immediately. One of the biggest challenges is resources both physically and through courses and workshops. Solidifying the relationship and officially partnering with The Windward Institute in New York will get teachers all access passes to the most current training and opportunities in the sectors.
DEDICATION AND COMMITTMENT - NURTURE CHILDREN LEARNING AND PROVIDE ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Based on the magnitude of the issues that need to be addressed in the education sector in Jamaica, the words dedication and commitment become very operative as to what it will take to shift the paradigm. Winsome Wishes for KIDS has already shown both dedication and commitment by embarking on various enrichment activities for teachers and schools that include technology support, training support and social/emotional support.
Winsome Wishes for KIDS seeks to engage noted experts in the field of Education, Social Work, Psychology and any other relevant discipline to empower teachers and parents with important and pertinent information that will detect and find early solutions to ensure the success of children and families.
To date Winsome Wishes for KIDS has formed key strategic partnerships that are in keeping with its mission and vision. They continue to seek other partnerships and collaborations that can enhance existing strategies and also other partnerships that introduce new strategies and resources.
