The Executive Chairman, Osun State Universal Basic Education Board, Hon Israel Ajibola Famurewa  in his opening remarks at  the opening ceremony said the whole essence of the  training is to inculcate and create a friendly environment  for children so that they will later become responsible future leaders.

According Hon. Famurewa, Governor Adegboyega Oyetola is committed to ensuring qualitative education and conducive learning environment for the children.

The  SUBEB boss therefore  enjoined the participants particularly the Caregivers at the training workshop to gear up by  working hard and be ready to transfer the knowledge acquired during the training program to the pre- primary school children kept  under their custody. 

Earlier in his welcome address, the Executive Secretary, SUBEB, Mr.Adeoye Bakare, eulogized the present administration under the leadership of governor Adegboyega Oyetola and UBEC for the various training workshops. 

Mr Adeoye who implored the participants  to make proper use of the knowledge acquired during the  training, also reiterated the resolve of the Oyetola Administration not to leave any stone unturned in giving the best of education to children in the state .

In his remarks, one of the resource persons, Dr. Joshua Adeleke of the  Institute of Education, University of Ibadan thanked the organizers of the workshop for the timeliness of the training workshops.

While also lauding the Administration of Mr Adegboyega Oyetola, the University lecturer  did not fail to emphasise that the program is very germane at this crucial time as he pointed  out that the Early Care Childhood Development Education  (E.C.C.D.E) Program will help the children to develop strong mental capacity at a very tender  age through viable teaching and learning activities  embedded  in the program.
