By BBN Staff: Today, the Ministry of Education held a closed-door emergency meeting with parents who had children enrolled at Pine Street Community Preschool, to decide what would become of the children enrolled there since the school closed down.

Several representatives of the ministry met with the parents to discuss the fate of the 71 students and four teachers affected by the school’s closure. The ministry put forth two options to the parents, either to enroll their children at one of five schools that the ministry has identified with available space or wait until the ministry finds a location to house the students and have them continue as normal with the teachers that were assigned by the ministry.

The five schools were Port Loyola Preschool, Lloyd Coffin Preschool, Church of Christ Preschool, Central Christian Preschool, and St. Martin’s Preschool.

Ultimately, the majority of the parents agreed to wait for the ministry to find a new venue. Concerned parents told our newsroom that the former management of Pine Street Preschool did not tell them the school was closing down when they collected registration fees, which covered the entire year.

Parents also said that their contributions such as folder sheets, typing sheets, and even fans donated to the school have not been returned. When they tried contacting the management to inquire about these things, they said they could not get through.

The ministry told parents that since the school was privately owned, it cannot intervene and that any payments or settlements for payments made will be between the parents and the former managers.

The ministry officials declined to comment following the meeting, explaining that there was still more to discuss at the ministry level before any comments could be made.
