Highlights

The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has promoted strengthening of early learning in pre-primary and early grades in the past few years to build a strong foundation for children for later years of schooling. The Padhe Bharat Badhe Bharat guidelines have emphasized the importance of early learning, both early language and literacy, and early mathematics. In 2017, MHRD expressed interest in development of a framework and guidelines for developing programmes for improving early learning outcomes in language and mathematics. UNICEF took up this task to develop an ‘early learning framework/package’ including both early language and literacy, and early mathematics to serve as guidance to states/UTs (henceforth called states) for designing their own early learning enhancement programs. Language and Learning Foundation (LLF), worked on development of the framework and manuals for early learning in collaboration with UNICEF and MHRD.
