A. Curriculum Development: MA PROGRAMMCE IN ECCE
B. Technical Assistance to Rajashthan
C. West Bengal ECE Curiculum
CECED partnered with UNICEF West Bengal to provide technical assistance for development of an ECCE curriculum to be piloted as a part of the MWCD initiative in several states. CECED team participated as a resource agency in several workshops and consultations organised by Unicef West Bengal and SSA West Bengal. West Bengal is one of the 19 states in the country which has developed a new curriculum and is piloting it in 50 Anganwadi centres according to guidelines provided by NIPCCD. CECED provided technical expertise to develop the curriculum, reviewed the methodology for field testing and provided some of the tools to document the implementation of the curriculum. A CECED faculty member conducted field visits to the pilot programs and also facilitated a focus group discussion with 12 Anganwadi workers who were participating in the pilot program. This was a very fruitful collaboration and we look forward to continuing the relationship in the coming year.
