We began with a mission to build a school in an impoverished village in Nepal. Now we have evolved into an organization that strives to provide better educational opportunities to children all around Nepal. As part of this evolved mission, we started providing specialized early childhood teacher training to teachers in community schools where we have operated.
With a long term commitment in improving the hardware and software infrastructure of the public education system, we have developed a teacher training module tailored for the primary schools. The training aims to train public school teachers to enhance their capacity in teaching the students in a child friendly environment using the local context and the resources through English medium.
The training is mainly for preschool and primary teachers. However, we involve headmasters and parents in the training to raise awareness about the importance of a good education in a child’s future.
The primary objectives our our training program are:
- To equip local schools and primary teachers with conceptual and practical knowledge about how to operate and manage an early childhood development class in a responsible, effective and child friendly manner
- To equip local schools and primary teachers with skills and knowledge about development of young children, teaching techniques and methods and making appropriate use of the local context and the local resources
- To empower parents with knowledge and understanding of the developmental stages of their young children and to give them some tools to guide them as they bring up their children
The effectiveness of the training module has been tested in a public school in Kathmandu valley. The training includes theoretical and practical courses for the participating teachers. The training has been designed to incorporate several visits to the schools by the trainer after each training phase has been completed.
