(Aunty Jenny) Our families are our first teachers.
It doesn’t matter where you’re from or
what communities you are;
our children are learning in our homes
before they even step out into the classrooms.
Education is the key for the 21st century,
but Early Childhood is a foundation.
And that’s why it’s so important to be

’cause that’s our leaders of tomorrow.
