The Eastern landmark of Sri Lanka has witnessed a 3 decade old civil war resulting in the breakdown of basic Education facilities and infrastructure posing a greater threat on early childhood education
In the east, we focus on early childhood development & education targeting 50 Preschools in the 3 districts of the province. Promoting school readiness through quality equitable child friendly preschools.
In partnership with provincial department of Education Eastern province, we have now embarked on a venture to formulate the Child friendly guidelines and supplementary materials to the Preschools in the Eastern province. The pilot project of model child friendly preschools ends in October 2015 and 50 preschools in the east would have adopted the CFA guidelines and would have developed their school environments to quality standards.
ASM initiated the project supported by UNICEF and has succeeded in strengthening the Preschool communities in 17 educational zones.
