Bengaluru: KLAY (Kids Learning And You) Prep Schools and Day Care is all set to host India’s first-ever International Summit on Early Years (ISEY) on 5th September 2019 in Bengaluru. With this summit, KLAY aims to provide a single largest platform to educators as well as researchers in the field of Early Childhood Education (ECE) and create a community that is ready to take responsibility for the future of ECE in India.
ISEY 2019 is scheduled to take place on Teacher’s Day i.e. 5th September from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM at MLR Convention Centre, Bengaluru. This first-of-its-kind summit is a step towards investing in practitioners who work with young children on a daily basis and bring to light issues around modern early childhood that can be duly addressed with techniques and practices from across the world, under the theme – “Happy Adults = Happy Children”.
Meghna Yadav, Head – Training And Development, KLAY said, “With the National Education Policy turning the spotlight on professional training for early educators, it is time to shift focus from content and pedagogy to understanding the associated learning outcomes for teachers. ISEY 2019 will provide the required mentoring and career mapping for early educators, which will ultimately ensure quality education in the country.”
The conference will witness globally acclaimed keynote speakers including:
Dr. Peter Gray, Author and Researcher at Boston College, who will deliver the keynote address on ‘Why play is far more valuable for children’s mental growth than academic training’
Ashish Karamchandani, Managing Director – FSG who will speak on ‘Ground Realities of ECE Professionals’
