The "lamp of knowledge" is being handed over to teachers through Gnyandeep, that aims to educate preschool teachers on developmentally appropriate and enjoyable teaching methods. We are very grateful to The Erach & Roshan Sadri Foundation which has generously supported this program in its early years. Gnyandeep runs thrice weekly over a period of 6 months. The next training course will commence in June 2011. Teachers will be trained on topics such as child development, curriculum and special needs. The various units are: Child Development, Principles of Learning, Phonological Awareness & Phonics, Reading, Writing, Maths, Art, Music and Rhythm, Dramatics, Self-Help skills, Teaching the Child with Special Needs, Working with parents and Classroom management. Professionals who want to attend this training should contact Michelle on 6513749.
