Getting Ready for School

by Child to Child - Thursday, 19 November 2020, 12:33 PM
 

Child to Child’s Getting Ready for School (GRS) programme presents an innovative, low-cost solution that supports school readiness for children with little access to quality early learning opportunities. Its defining characteristic is that it involves the direct and active participation of children as agents of change. GRS is based on the Child to Child concept of older children (Young Facilitators) being supported to teach/coach younger children (Young Learners) in their communities. In 2020, we commissioned a comprehensive review, collation and consolidation process for our Getting Ready for School (GRS) project materials. These provide a roadmap to project implementation.
