Introduction to the ECCEd Certificate Course

ECCEd course is an ideal child psychology course. To begin with it is designed for pre-primary, nursery, kindergarten or Montessori teachers in Mumbai. In recent time we have seen a lot of play schools in addition to primary and pre-primary schools opening up. In every locality lot of new play schools have opened. Therefore the need for trained Montessori teachers is growing in Mumbai. Very small children come for admissions in a play school. Hence it is necessary to have trained teachers to handle them.

To manage kids compared to grownup children is a challenging task. Therefore trained teachers are hired. Play group is a job of a specialist teacher. Managing and handling a child in a nursery is a very sensitive issue. We need to be care in hiring a teacher particularly from the point of children’s safety. In conclusion, a good teacher is necessary for child’s social, psychological and emotional well being.

Why Doing an ECCEd course is Important?

If untrained people handle the child, it can have a serious impact on the child’s mental and emotional well being. It may leave the child traumatised and scared for a long time. The child must be handled by professionals only.  Play schools must hire only those who have been trained to understand the psychology of the child. A trained teacher knows ways to ensure that the child feels safe and comfortable over there. Moreover, the child should feel happy to be there in school. In a comfortable environment the child learns, grows and easily develops social skills.  This will form the basis of his primary education and further studies.

A teacher who is trained under a professional child psychologist, can create this kind of environment. Our course curriculum deals with these issues in detail and in addition to that, aims at preparing the right candidates.  Our ECCEd course trains them well for job in play schools, nurseries, kindergarten and Montessori schools.

We have a very good team of educationalist, developmental psychologists, special educators in addition to clinical and counselling psychologists.  We also have other  remedial teachers who give and excellent insight in this ECCEd course about how a child must be handled in a play school.  In brief, through this ECCEd course, we train teachers and also prepare them into becoming a good play school or pre-primary teachers.
