AMS Residential Training Programme
Shriram Foundation along with Durgabai Deshmukh Mahila Sabha (formerly Andhra Mahila Sabha), Hyderabad, aims to create a team of master teachers in Early Childhood Education in the Krishna District schools.
AMS is a pioneer and leader in contextualised joyful learning pedagogies for Early Childhood Education in India. They ran monthly training sessions for pre-primary teachers of the M100 schools during 2016-17. The trained teachers were assessed on the changes they brought in their classrooms following the training. New ideas, activity-based methodologies, creating and using vibrant learning spaces and teaching learning materials, interactivity in the classroom, children’s engagement and enjoyment, teachers’ own creativity and inventiveness were factors that were considered during the evaluation.
Five teachers received cash prizes of Rs. 2000 each and a certificate from Shriram Foundation after being selected the Best Pre-Primary teachers in the M100 schools. The teachers are Ms.Shaik Fathima and Ms.Rajeshwari of Shoghi School, Nunna, Ms.Sudha Rani of St. John’s School, Khambampadu, Ms.Radha and Ms.Lakshmi of Nirmal Hruday, Chillakallu.
These five prize winning teachers, two new teachers of Shriram Matriculation School, Mangalagiri and our Academic Coordinator Ms.Suneeta Rani underwent a four-day residential training program in Hyderabad in July 2017. The comprehensive training, led by Mrs.Kamala Reddy, Principal, Lab School and Mrs.Rathnamala, Senior Faculty in AMS, gave teachers insights into child development, domains of development, ECE curriculum and pedagogies, daily routines and timetables, activities and methodologies and the making of teaching learning materials.
