Young's Daycare and Preschool from Hopewell emerged champions of the Hanover Parish Library Network's 3rd Annual Early Childhood Quiz Competition, which was held at the Hopewell Branch Library recently. They edged the Sandy Bay Seventh Day Adventist Kindergarten in the finals of the competition and took home the championship trophy, gift packages, individual medals and certificates.

"The aim of this programme is to foster a joy of reading in young children as well as to stimulate cultural awareness from an early age. This quiz was also planned to highlight the role of the library in the community and how it can positively impact the lives of citizens," said rural development librarian, Vonnette Jones.

Seven early childhood institutions participated in the competition that was held over a four-week period. The other schools were Hopewell Christian Deliverance Centre Basic School; Haddington, Bamboo Missionary and Hopewell Basic Schools and the Cold Spring Early Childhood Development Centre.
