EducationWorld in association with the Early Childhood Association of India is organising a first-of-its-kind comprehensive training workshop for educators on ‘Understanding & Implementing NCF 2022 for the Foundational Stage’
Released on October 20 by Union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan, the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2022 for the Foundational Stage emphasises provision of holistic early childhood care and education (ECCE) to children from 3 to 8 years with emphasis on age-appropriate development of children’s language, numeracy, motor and cognitive skills. It recommends usage of creative and experiential pedagogies to develop children’s critical thinking, speaking, writing and other 21st century skills. Most importantly, NCF 2022 recognises the importance of ‘play’ as the “core of the conceptual, operational, and transactional approaches to curriculum organization, pedagogy, time and content organization, and the overall experience of the child”. It prescribes play-way learning methods through play-conversation, stories, toys, music, art and craft.
This comprehensive workshop will focus on equipping educators with the knowledge and skills to implement NCF 2022 for the Foundational Stage in their classrooms. The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Swati Popat Vats, president of the Early Childhood Association of India (ECA) and Association of Primary Education Research (APER) and Dr. Reeta Sonawat, former head, department of human development, SNDT Women’s University, Mumbai and executive director of ECA-APER.
