Pre-School Conference Start of Empowerment for Young


About 800 kindergarden/pre-school teachers and aides from around the country attended, Thursday, the first-ever national conference for their ranks.

Deputy Education Minister Avi Wortzman initiated the effort. He told those present, ''Studies show that investment in early childhood most significant influences a child's development and that's important to us as a country which seeks to raise creative, productive and contributing citizens." After the conference, he said, "This is just the beginning to early-childhood empowerment."
