When School is All About Having Fun
The basic principle of the Kajoli Model is to provide pre-school education at a very low cost or no cost. When a school is being run, there are some costs incurred that are unavoidable, namely the salary of the teacher. Hence the no cost system has still not been possible so the existing centres are run at a very low cost. Through the ECLCs under the model, the children are taught that learning is all 'fun and games'. "The centres are not schools, but merely gatherings", continues Bari. "It is something to make the children feel comfortable so that that they are not intimidated by the idea of going to school and realise that learning is fun.
