Edutech company Square Panda India, an innovator in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECCE) & educator empowerment programs in the country has initiated a free virtual teacher training programme with an aim to upskill early childhood educators in line with the National Education Policy 2020 that highlights the importance of right kind of early childhood environment for each child.
Speaking ahead of the launch of the SProfessional Development Program, Ashish Jhalani MD, Square Panda India remarked, "The consequences of not investing in ECCE are varied and far-reaching. To break this cycle of inadequate early education and children not reaching their full developmental potential, we need effective interventions across all levels of the Indian educational system. The purpose of this initiative is to empower educators to build holistic knowledge and transform the way they teach. It will help in capacity building of educators on ECCE and its impact on learning outcomes for children."
