Nanny Trg _0652web Nannies and domestic helpers participated in the first teaching initiative aimed at enhancing their role as co-educators of young children last night (Tuesday, 7 May 2013).Nanny trg-Group talk 46web

Literacy Coach Latasha Miller, along with teachers Jessica Jackson, Joanan Jackson, Iriny Grant, and Brenden Smith, facilitated the sessions for 40 attendees at Prospect Primary School, which was hosted by Principal Gloria Bell.

The discussions and small-group presentations focused on reinforcing an emphasis on phonetic word development and fun, as well as on using popular media (from TV shows to websites and magazine ads) to foster interest in learning and comprehension.

While a similar programme was previously held for parents, Prospect Primary’s strategic team devised this initiative for nannies – who will receive certificates of participation.  The school’s PTA sponsored the evening’s refreshments.nanny trg_hands 51web
