Preschool children playing interactive game with parents
Plan China has been developing an early childhood care and development programme since 2001. All of the 9 teachers working there have attended Plan training programmes that emphasise a play-orientated model in educating very young children. The ECCD programme aims to solve problems at a local level and provide a successful model for future changes implemented at a government level. During the 11 years of development of the programme, a central aim has been to improve awareness amongst caregivers of what kind of stimulation and communication suits pre-school children as opposed to children who are a little bit older. It has also concentrated on providing the necessary hardware support to existing kindergartens, whilst helping them to create a safe environment.
