Home-based ECCE Programme

Programme Description

The pandemic due to COVID-19 has created an unprecedented global challenge. West Bengal, along with other states in the country is fighting the pandemic with all its might. A parenting programme to offer Home-based Learning was undertaken to ensure that children are engaged at home in meaningful and developmentally appropriate activities which they could enjoy with their parents and other family members. It was targeted to reach approximately 27 lakh children enrolled in the 1,19,481 Anganwadi centres in the state across all its 23 districts. Research shows that non-attendance / dropout of children from schools are inevitable in a post pandemic situation, especially for children from vulnerable communities. The home learning package was an effort by the government to address this issue by maintaining continuity of learning and remain connected with children and their families.   Read More . . .
