A project and policy dissemination workshop was held for the British Academy funded project titled, Early Childhood Care and Education in India: Examining contexts, costs and practices conducted by CBPS in collaboration with University of Cambridge. The one and a half day workshop brought together policy makers, grassroots organisations and academics, to reflect upon project findings in relation to planning for ‘responsive’ ECCE models, as well as the recent draft National Education Policy. The sessions included the presentation of ethnographic findings from the study and a framework for costing ECCE models, followed by invited responses by panelists. Open discussions allowed for a rich and insightful dialogue covering a range of issues around ECCE in India.
It was held at Radisson Blu Atria on 29 and 30 August 2019. The concept note and agenda can be viewed here.
