Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Development refers to early care a child receives from parents, teachers and caregivers, where children learn through play and develop their social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills. They ask questions, solve problems and interact with peers and adults.
Early Learning Program (ELP) Under ELP, we aim to foster children’s overall well-being and to ensure possible conditions for growth and development in a natural, child-friendly environment where they can experience joy, freedom of action in a safe environment and where they learn through play, experiments and discovery.
ELP has been initiated in 2009 with the sole aim to improve early education through qualitative reforms in targeted 150 government schools across five districts of Sindh, i.e. Tando Muhammad Khan, Badin, Khairpur, Noushehro Feroz and Ghotki.
