No Child Left Behind!

A child's early years are the foundation for his or her future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning and learning abilities, including cognitive and social development. Families from the lower income group often are unable to provide children with adequate support to ensure timely development of fine and gross motor skills. Some are not even aware of the delay or the age appropriate milestones their children should achieve at a given age.

MMC has long recognised the importance of stimulating educational environment for early childhood learning. Nearly sixty percent of the children living on construction sites we serve are below the age of six years. Over the years we have developed a robust Early Childhood Care and Education programme to meet the needs of children under six. Crèche and preschool teachers engage the children with toys, games, the arts and other sensory activities.

We would like to share story of a child who was behind her peers when he arrived at our centre but improved with specific interventons by pour teachers.

Paras, 2 years old child was a quiet child when he was enrolled into the centre. He would not talk and would just take all the toys and keep them with him. He did not know how to play and would not allow the teachers either to assist him. As time passed he observed children stacking up the building blocks one on top of another and tried hard to do the same. It took him almost a month to put two blocks together. The teacher identified the delay in fine motor skills in Paras and requested his mother to at least buy pull-toys and engage with him at home to further improve his gross and fine motor skills. The mother bought him pull-toys and a car toy to play at home which further aided his development.

Today, after 5 months of continuous intervention at the center, his is able to make 5 storied tower block with ease. Earlier he would not engage with other children. While playing, he now shares the toys with other children at the center and plays along with them. When he joined he could only say single words like ,(Ma) ,(Pa) now he can say 4 word sentences, also he attempts to sing rhymes along with the teacher. His parents are thankful to the teachers. His mom said that she is happy with the attention the teachers’ pay at the children.
