Jamaica News: Early-childhood practitioners will no longer be required to pay for certain government documents.

This was stated by Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, during a post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House on Wednesday (December 5).

“Cabinet has granted approval for all practitioners at registered early-childhood institutions to be exempt from paying for police records, medical reports and food handlers’ permits,” he informed.

Senator Reid noted that all three related ministries – Education, Youth and Information; National Security, and Health – will absorb the relevant fees in their budgets as needed.

“The Early Childhood Commission (ECC) will monitor and verify only those approved practitioners to be exempted from payment,” he said.

They will however, still be required to get annual renewals to be fully complaint with the requisite legislation and to operate within the Commission’s operational standards, the Minister emphasised.
