Overview

Rural kindergartens seek the comprehensive development of children through activities of cognitive, motor, affective and social skills. The rural Kindergartens often are run by mothers of the community (called "entertainers" or "promoters"). These “teachers” receive training and then are monitored regularly (ideally once a week) for lecturer (called "teacher coordinators"). In addition, rural kindergartens are formed on the basis of community participation. Hence, they are hugely different from the other urban kindergartens that you must have known throughout your life.
