How can you make a difference?
Learning through visual arts:
Learning by doing is the principle of learning at Anganwadis. Teaching and learning aids in the form of ‘visual Arts’ form Socio-Emotional, cognitive and motor development in children.
Young children feel a sense of emotional satisfaction when they are involved in making art, whether they are modelling with clay, drawing with crayons, or making a collage from recycled scraps. They enjoy the feeling of a crayon moving across the paper and seeing a blob of coloured paint grow larger. While making art, young children develop control of large and small muscle groups. Making art helps children develop eye-hand coordination.
Another form of art in pres-school is ‘Free-Play’ which is critical to the healthy growth and development of children. It develops physical cognitive, emotional, language skills social skills, new ideas, social interaction, confidence in their growing abilities, can-do attitude, in children.
Peer group learning…. creating a joyful environment
Experiences in the first two or three years of life have implications for children’s acceptance by their classmates in nursery school and the later school years. Thus, peer learning plays important roles in children’s lives at much earlier points in development. Children who are competent with peers at an early age, and those who show pro-social behaviour, are particularly likely to be accepted by their peers.
The peer group also influences the development of children's socializing skills. These early friendships help children learn how to negotiate and relate to others, including their siblings and other family members.
Nirmaan organization is working along with the Govt of Telangana to support these anganwadis with the Digital Device Campaign.
Anganwadis…striving to nurture smiles
Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) Scheme, a flagship programme of the Centrally Assisted State Plan Schemes of Government of India, is renamed as Anganwadi Services Project in December 2017. It provides a package of health, nutrition, and education services to women and children. Currently, 31,711 main Anganwadi Centres and 3,989 mini AWCs are functioning under 149 ICDS Projects in the State.
Under ICDS, a package of services comprising supplementary nutrition, pre-school non-formal education, immunization, health checkup, and referral services are provided to 4 lakhs pregnant and lactating women and 14 lakh children below <6 years every year. The Department is working in coordination with Health and Family Welfare Department in rolling out these programmes. Pulse polio, immunization, referral services, health checkup, National De-worming Day, Nutrition Health and Education Days, etc., are conducted in AWCs in coordination with the Health Department.
A hot cooked meal is served to children attending pre-schools and pregnant, lactating women in the catchment area of Anganwadi centres for 25 days in a month. Regular growth monitoring is being carried out to assess the weights and heights of children and pregnant, lactating mothers, thus estimating the nutritional status. Apart from nutritional support, these anganwadis also conduct activity-based pre-school learning for 3-6 age group children for readiness to formal schooling.
These Anganwadi centres have always been great resource centres of information for the community on various aspects concerning children, adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women.
They now need a helping hand to continue their journey and to make these daycare centres as vibrating centres in nurturing the smiles of future generations.
