Cayman Islands Government

Teach them Young!

Early childhood sets standards for life, says Education Minister Rolston Anglin.

This week (Monday, 18 October) GIS Spotlight explores the importance of the early years, takes a look at the Lion's Eye Clinic, and learns how to respect the rights of others.

"Early childhood provides foundations for life and deserves serious attention," says Education Minister the Hon. Rolston Anglin. For this reason and by appointing a National Early Childhood Taskforce, the Ministry of Education has made it a priority.

We talk to taskforce members and education officials to understand this team's goals and ambitions.

Next, we give you an eye-opener on how a small piece of equipment can make a big difference at the Lions' Eye Clinic. We show you how it works and hear from staff how it will enhance patient care.

The Cayman Islands' first Bill of Rights is set to come into effect in November 2012. To put the wheels in motion for compliance, a group of civil servants has received training from international human rights experts.

Find out what they learned and how this will translate into upholding and protecting your personal rights.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All the stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.
