Chandigarh, October 22

To achieve the objective of quality and excellence in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE), the Department of School Education, Chandigarh, has started “Kilkaari Project” for schoolchildren.

The idea behind the project is to make classrooms as learning spaces which bolster curiosity, energy and imagination of toddlers.

The project was formally inaugurated in Government Primary School, RC (III), Dhanas, by the Director, School Education, Chandigarh, Dr Palika Arora. The previous Director, School Education, Rubinderjit Singh Brar, under whose guidance the project was conceptualised and initiated, also graced the occasion.

A special introductory session was held for all Urban Resource Centre Coordinators and Cluster Resource Centre Coordinators to explain the pre-primary design of the ECCE which includes, “The Path to Class (Corridor)”, “The Class (Indoor)”, “The Class Beyond Walls (Outdoor)”.

The orientation of all principals/heads of government schools has been planned with the aim that the learning from the pre-primary design created in GPS-Dhanas can be adopted/adapted in all government schools of the city.

A workshop for nursery teachers has also been planned in the coming months for the transition of teaching learning under the ECCE and the development of toys/teaching learning material so that the same can be used in all pre-primary classes. All principals/heads will undertake a campaign, “Share toys give joy”, for the collection of toys from their local area so that the same can be utilised in classroom teaching at the pre-primary level.

The thought behind the programme has been to make classrooms full of positive laughter, shaping the enormous bundles of energy in our wonderful young ones into love for learning, far away from fear and hence the name “Kilkaari”.
