Q:Although much stress is on enrolment, the real question is whether the schools are ready to induct young children and provide them with a thriving, curious and positive nurturing learning environment?
Q: Are there teachers available and trained to facilitate a batch of 30-50 -90 children?
Q: Do the schools have sufficient learning resource material to make the experience meaningful?
Q: Do the teachers’ realize the significance of ECE and do they see themselves as quality caregivers?
