Early childhood program

Shree Deurali School, Lalitpur, Nepal

  • Team: Books of Joy and VolNepal 
  • Goal: Developed a comprehensive early childhood education program (including a resource library)
  • Background: 
    • This particular school catered to children of daily wage-laborers, with ages ranging from 3 to 9; prior to the program, children typically followed their parents to work, risking exposure to unhealthy environments
  • Outcome:
    • As part of the education program, we sourced educational materials and toys that help to develop hand/eye coordination while teaching arithmetic basics
    • The school’s curriculum tested and adopted this play-based learning methodology; teachers were provided training materials and physical assets to continue this practice in future
