Dynamic Learning Kits Launched for Children in Anganwadis

The Delhi government on Thursday unveiled the Khel Pitara- Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Kit, which includes educational resources, picture books, toy sets, and puzzles for children in anganwadis.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “I’ve been informed that this kit was designed after studying the early childhood programs in not just India, but across the world. It consists of learning material as well as objects for play and entertainment of children.” When introducing the kit, which was created by a team from an anganwadi and the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) Delhi, the CM was optimistic.

Speaking to the press, Shailender Sharma, the Principal Advisor to Director of Education, said, “The kit not only has toys for recreational purposes but has been designed to bear elements which contribute towards all-round development of a child up to the age of six years.”

“The objective is to align with early literacy and numeracy skills, aiming to make children better learners and push them to think critically, collaborate, and connect with their immediate environment,” Sharma added.

The set comes with supplies like a construction kit, trays, and learning tools. The visual reading materials also include glitter tubes, crayons, origami sheets, alphabet books, tactile and story cards, posters, and alphabet flashcards.

According to officials, 11,000 additional staff at anganwadis and 2,000 supervisors have received training on how to utilise the equipment. An ECCE Manual is also included in the bundle. “Khel Pitara” Kits will be supplied to Delhi’s 11,000 anganwadi facilities, with 7,500 already receiving them, according to a statement from the Delhi government.
