“Jaadui Pitara,” Learning and Teaching Material: Key Points

  • According to Pradhan, it is a cutting-edge, child-centered learning philosophy that would equip early children for a lifetime of learning and carry out one of the most important objectives of the new National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
  • The government introduced a national curriculum framework (NCF) for foundation or early childhood care in October of last year in accordance with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which advises against using textbooks with children between the ages of three and six.
  • Also, it placed a focus on encouraging learning based on play, lived experience, and the usage of one’s mother tongue.
  • The ministry consequently introduced play-based materials for kids enrolled in Balvatika, which includes classes for nursery, lower kindergarten (LKG), and upper kindergarten (UKG).
