A ceremony to educate parents about early childhood development was held at Zabuthiri Hall in Nay Pyi Taw Council Area yesterday, with Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement-MSWRR Dr Win Myat Aye calling on parents to systematically nurture their under three year old children
Speaking at the event, Union Minister Dr Win Myat Aye said his ministry is also giving trainings to the employees to educate the parents as the ministry is concerned for early childhood development.
Long-term manpower resources need to be created from early childhood. Brain development of a child is within its first 1,000 days so parents must take the duty of systematic nurturing, said the Union minister.
To cover the needs of whole country, there are not enough state-operated daycare centers and preschools and still requirements across the nations. The government is providing assistance for self-operated preschools and mother circles.
The Union minister has urged the parents to check the development of children until three years old regularly with the use of directives of the ministry.
Afterwards, the MSWRR Union Minister and Deputy Director-General answered to the questions raised by attended parents about the matters related to nurturing children, disabled children’s education, more cooperation on hearing-impaired children, and trainings and techniques required for setting up home-based mother circles.
Then, the Union Minister, the Deputy Minister, Nay Pyi Taw Council member U Aung Myin Tun, members of supervision committee on nurturing early child’s development and related officials met and discussed.
Following the meeting, the Union minister held a meeting with Nay Pyi Taw authorities over a child abuse case in Nay Pyi Taw.
In accordance with the ministry’s procedures, the Social Welfare Department of the Nay Pyi Taw Council Area has been working over the child abuse case occurred in Nay Pyi Taw Council Area since it happened, pledging to discover the truth about the case.
Pre-primary schools have been ordered to accept children aged three to five years old and not to open the schools before permission, according to the ministry.—MNA (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
