Marie Cuffy is an Early Childhood Curriculum Programme Facilitator. She is very passionate about early childhood education. It is her belief that the best investment anyone can make is in their early years, as what happens in the first six years of someone’s life basically sets the skills and coping competence for life. Her educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in education with a concentration in Early Childhood Care Education (ECCE), and Master’s of Education in Literacy Instructions from the University of the West Indies. She is a first-time author of the book, Lola and the Dancing Ladybugs. She attributes her love of children’s literature and her need to contribute worthy stories to the genre as her reasons for writing. She also wants to inspire children to read, write, create, imagine and dream.
