The course outline was really very well designed!

The information shared was good,

our mentor took lot of effort to make us understand the subject by providing lot of vedio sessions and modules to cover up along with the assessments of each week.

students from different backgrounds took part in completing this course, most of us had a good experience, i personally faced problems while submitting the assessments, as it used to close before the mentioned date. and few modules had incorrect answers as correct option and so on,.

inspite of all this small small obstacles during the course time, i gained lot of information from this course.

Heartfelt Thanks to our content writer, mentor. for making this journey easy as much as possible and for providing the healthy learning environment.

and clearing all our doubts on time:)

Thank you.

Regards

The course is indeed a huge platform imparting knowledge on early childhood education. It helps the learners to understand the concept and components of early childhood education and to gain knowledge on curriculum development and planning for early childhood years. The course further helps to know the importance of play and also how it facilitates child's learning through play. Overall, it makes me realize why early years are critical and how a conductive learning environment helps in the development of early years.
