The first six years of a child’s life are crucial as it is during this period that a child’s brain develops faster than during any other period of life and the child’s early development sets the course for future evolvements. During these six years, stimuli are proven to positively influence the child’s brain, motor skills, and other developments. In other words, the base for a successful education in the future and the overall physical and mental well-being of the child can be prepared with proper guidance during these years.
Just as a healthy diet is key to a child’s development and malnutrition in these early years can have adverse effects on the future life of the child, as general undernutrition and a diet lacking specific nutrients can cause problems in body and brain development, similarly, if left unattended, the mental and physical development of the child can also fall below potential, even be stunted.
Quality pre-primary education is the foundation of a child’s journey through life
This is precisely why, around the world, it is now accepted that quality pre-primary education is the foundation of a child’s journey through life, with every subsequent stage of education relying on its success. It is however a sad fact of life that despite the proven benefits, nearly half of all pre-primary-age students around the world are not enrolled in pre-primary institutions. What is worse is that for children who do have access to pre-primary education, a combination of poorly trained educators, overcrowded and unstimulating environments, unsuitable curricula, and unscientific delivery mechanisms diminish the quality of their experiences, condemning them into an unending loop of lifelong underachievement.
It will not be out of place to mention here that failure to provide quality early childhood education severely limits children’s futures by denying them opportunities to reach their full potential. It also limits the futures of communities and countries, robbing them of the human capital needed to reduce inequalities and promote peaceful, prosperous societies.
The Nalanda Learning system
This is precisely where Nalanda Learning steps in. Armed with a rich experience of running multiple pre-schools for decades at an end, Nalanda has not only created the perfect environment where the minds of the young learners are stimulated to spark their inquisitiveness by curricula that they can relate to, gently goaded by trained educators who are dedicated to ensuring the transfer of the right kind of knowledge but has also created a system where the parents have been coopted as process stakeholders, as together the work of creating the Nation’s tomorrow is performed in right earnest.
Scientifically created, the Nalanda Learning system, with its stress on learning tools empowered by the latest technological advancements from the digital world and with a built-in system that monitors the real-time progress of each participating child, the system also puts an inordinate amount of stress on the continuous skilling of the teachers with the active participation of parents, which ensures the complete and all-round development of each child.
