Parent interactions and involvement, social development, play facilitation, appraisals, and classroom environment are among the fundamental subjects educators from India and Singapore performed on during the "Early Childhood Education Curriculum Enhancement and Pedagogy" project. The capacity-building project is being organised by the SIF- Singapore International Foundation and Muktangan Education Trust- a non-profit institution that mentors municipal schools in Mumbai.



Since the beginning of the project in 2017, around 32 educators from Singapore have worked closely with nearly 700 educators in Mumbai in order to increase the professional standards of ECE- early childhood education in Maharashtra.



Division Director of Strategic Management at Singapore International Foundation, Ng Herk Low, said the success of this five-year initiative marks another milestone in the 26-year friendship between the SIF & India, where Singaporeans and their Indian collaborators worked jointly on shared challenges at the people-to-people level.



Founder of Muktangan Education Trust, Elizabeth Mehta, said early childhood education is an integral pillar of economic and social development of any society. The wisdom exchange has resulted in higher professional standards and improved ECE curricula. She added I believe the project will provoke more cross-cultural cooperation and friendships between our nations.



During the program, the educator achieved a sequence of in-person and online workshops, conferences, and study visits as part of the initiative. The educators from both countries collaborated on topics including parent interactions and involvement, social development, play facilitation, inclusive practices, early interventions, teacher appraisals, and classroom learning environments.



The project also witnessed 34 Indian Master Trainers equipped with the appropriate skills and knowledge to ready other ECE educators. At least 3,400 Indian ECE educators discovered how to enhance curricula. They learned how to pick up new pedagogical and assessment skills. Approximately 45,000 educators and students in Maharashtra have profited from this project.
