Summary

- This project will provide pre-school access to 3000 3-6 year old children studying in 100 Government-run pre-school centers in Bangalore,India for a year. - The pre-school centers will be stocked with a kit corresponding with the government-designated curriculum for early childhood education and covers 7 Learning Domains - The children will be assessed twice a year on their age appropriate skill sets to measure their learning outcomes - It will also include capacity building of the teachers

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

- There are over 100 million children in India between the age-group of 0 and 6 years who do not have access to preschool education.These children would possibly not have a chance to access intensive parental engagement. They would have less exposure to expansive vocabulary and due to their poverty situation, may not be able to properly develop their cognitive and other skills -This project focuses on providing preschool education to 11,000 such children studying in 355 centers in Bangalore

How will this project solve this problem?

We will support the centers in the following ways: - Provide education to 3000 3-6 year old children in 100 government-run centers in Bangalore - Provide training to 100 teachers in new methodologies in preschool education in order to ensure school readiness in the children Provide Teaching Learning Materials to the centers - Assess the learning outcomes of the children twice a year on their age appropriate skill sets - Strengthen community support by training bodies like Bal Vikas Samitis

Potential Long Term Impact

- We will educate 3000 3-6 year old preschoolers, helping them to develop their cognitive and other skills. - Capacity building of 100 pre-school teachers, so that they can ensure school-readiness in the preschool children by also focusing on early language and basic math. - Track children from preschool to formal schools and evaluate their math and language skills. - Strengthening of the Bal Vikas Samithis - local bodies which assists the pre-schools in running efficiently
