“My journey to become an ICDP Facilitator has been a life-changing experience for me, both professionally and personally. As I entered the house of ICDP, I began to explore those principles inside myself. I found that I already had those rooms inside myself but I was covered with dust, lost in my profession. The mixture of theory with many practical skill exercises & handouts has helped me to discover new strategies for dealing with my own challenges and for assisting my caregivers to overcome theirs. My trainers Reiny Ma’am, Doji Ma’am and Pitamber sir conveyed the information with great clarity and provided extensive opportunity for workshop participants to engage experientially with the materials, presentation and sensitizing activities. Like I have explored my spiritual outlook, I look forward to add testimonies of caregivers in my file as my achievement so that my motivation is consistent as a facilitator. Definitely one of the best workshops I have attended during my career. Thank you for providing such a powerful and inspirational learning environment.”
"ICDP caregiver training was a smart decision I had taken to get more insight about parenting my child in the right way. Being busy with my own business and also taking out time to attend classes was itself a challenge for me. All the classes attended was highly interactive and interesting and the visuals also helped better to understand ICDP from all angles. I have been recommending other new parents to take such classes for the we being of their child and also to be a better family person. The instructors were also very nice and made the lessons very enjoyable and easy to inculcate with fine examples."
"I have done B.Ed. in Primary Education and worked under the ministry of education (Bhutan) for 24 years. In 2013 I resigned and established my own ECCD centre in Paro, Bhutan. I have attended 10 days basic course on ECCD and 5 days course on early literacy and mathematic skills in my country. I felt that the training which I had gone through was not enough because I have always wanted to learn more and support my center and staff. I along with few of my staffs attended the 5 days pre-primary Level-1 training in December 2018 at ECEC. This training has given us more ideas especially putting theories into practice. We found this method very much practical. We are very much confident enough to run our centre with playway method. I have taken this profession by choice and I would like to recommend other caregivers, facilitators to learn from ECEC, Nepal."
