Early Childhood Development – early education and care – makes a difference that persists well into adulthood. It shapes who you become. At that age, your brain is making new connections that will one day become the blueprint for your life. And at that age, if you don’t receive the right kind of care or learning, you will grow up with…  a few crayons missing from your life’s pencil box. And why should that happen to anybody?

The problem is not that we don’t want to care for our children. People just need to know how. Parents, teachers, the government – all the stakeholders in the future of our children – we go about it on a trial-by-fire basis, learning each time as the child grows up. But we need a more structured, a more uniform way to do this. …At the Early Childhood Association of India, that is our mission – to help the country invest in taking care of its youngest citizens.

We do this with workshops, conferences, publications and research to ensure that the littlest citizens of this country get a voice when it comes to budgets, policies and laws that govern quality and safety in the early years.

Early Childhood Association works to ensure that every child gets a right start and a better childhood so that future of this country is  stronger and safer.

It’s not going to happen overnight. We are looking at big changes, revolutionary changes – but we are still taking baby steps. Still, if we can learn anything from these children, it’s that baby steps can make a big difference if they are in the right direction.

Having had eight successful and eventful years, the ECA decided to extend its boundaries and offer similar services in the areas of enrichment, networking, research, and assessment for the primary years too. This led to the creation of the Association for Primary Education and Research (APER), as a vertical under the aegis of ECA.

APER is tailored around promoting a growth mindset which will help to ignite the human greatness in all stakeholders. APER will support teacher training and enhancement programs that will aid in promoting the holistic development of children by promoting creativity, strengthening self-directed learning skills, imbibing core values, as well as helping them adopt a healthy lifestyle.
