Teachers training at Pahalgam

Training at school

Early Childhood Education (ECE) is a specialized field of pedagogy such that a standard preschool must have a research-based and a comprehensive learner-centered program and, most importantly, a highly-qualified pool of teachers and trained childcare providers to implement and enrich the program.

At present, there is a dearth in professionals trained or who have earned a diploma or master’s degree in ECE. There are less than twenty graduates in the first batch of the University of Kashmir’s diploma course on Early Childhood Education this year. Furthermore, the B.Ed (Bachelors in Education) program in the University of Kashmir does not lay strong emphasis on ECE. As a result, graduates of B.Ed need further education and training in ECE.
