KINGSTOWN, SVG (BreadFruit News) Officials from the Ministry of Education, Basic Needs Trust Fund (BNTF), Stewart Engineering and contractors Jack’s Construction Services will tour the Biabou Early Childhood Learning Centre today from 10:00 am.

The project which started in December 2019 with a ground breaking ceremony is in the final stages of completion. Parliamentary representative for the community and Minister of National Mobilisation Hon Fredericks Stevenson said then that the “centre will be the most beautiful in St. Vincent and the Grenadines” but was five (5) years in the making.

The project was expected to be finished for the start of the new school term but had faced delays due to the pandemic.
