Bangladeshi Woman is in Tulsa Learning the Business of Early Childhood Education Centers

In the Bangladeshi port city of Chittagong it’s common for women to put their careers on hold when they have children.

The primary reason is a lack of early childhood education and day care facilities, said Nasima Sirajee.

“There are some misconceptions from the parents who believe that day care centers provide sleeping pills or they hit the kids,” she said. “I am fighting to remove this misconception.”

Sirajee runs Floret Daycare with Preschooling, which she said is the only program of its type in Chittagong, the second largest city in Bangladesh.
