Children who participate in quality pre-school programs have better health, social-emotional and educational outcomes than those who do not. These gains are particularly powerful for children from low-income families.
Research shows that the foundations for learning are largely built in the early years of life, before a child ever crosses the thresholds of primary school. Reaching children early is the best way to transform futures.
Our Early Childhood Program is centered around school readiness for children ages 0-6. Getting children to the necessary developmental stage so that they are ready to learn and succeed in the classroom is our main priority.
We train Tijonel Rech Komon (women volunteers from the community) to carry out our early childhood trainings so that each of our communities is equipped with an early childhood expert!
Through our trainings, parents begin to understand the importance of early stimulation. They also gain knowledge on how to ensure their children are healthy and reaching key developmental and cognitive milestones.
School the World also emphasizes the importance of early enrollment in pre-primary school. If there is not one in the community, we empower parents to request a pre-primary school teacher from the government.
We build pre-primary schools and drive the supply of age-appropriate tools and games.

Our early childhood teacher training program helps teachers identify the cognitive markers that make a child "ready for school". We help them learn the best practices to achieve those markers and develop social and emotional skills so children begin to learn things like patience and self control.
