Extent of Geographical Area covered and target population benefitted:The school caters to the geographical areas of Thane, Dombivli, Kalyan, Ambernath, Shahad and Ulhasnagar.
Educare Development Trust has become the first in a path breaking venture to become the first and only integrated school beyond Thane. Educare Development Trust has been running a school for children with intellectual challenges, learning disabilities, autism, hearing and speech defects for the past ten years. This is actually adopting the latest innovative concept; i.e. Integration and making it a reality. As part of its mission it has under its wings a regular school that caters to regular children providing the mainstream curriculum; and a special school that provides instruction to special children and a teacher training unit that continually augments and consolidates the teachers’ capacities while also providing a continuous supply of conscientious and qualified teaching staff.
The regular and special children come together for various activities and events, which both can participate in and for instructional purposes they are separated; their each individual needs being different and requiring different approaches. The purpose of an integrated school is to provide special students the right exposure to a regular school set-up, the practices within and the behaviour and mannerisms of regular children, thereby providing a platform for learning the appropriate skills. In turn, in the regular students it increases understanding, tolerance and the spirit of nurturance for those less fortunate; this being an essential part of value education and life skills training. Thus there is learning both ways.
The Trust’s Dynamix is working as a Remedial School for the past ten years for children with disabilities, operating in Dombivli, MIDC and is one of its kind, i.e. this happens to be the only Integrated school in Dombivli and beyond Thane.The Trust also provides training for NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling) for students who are not able to give the regular Std. X examinations. This happens to be the only NIOS Centre, training and sending students as independent candidates to appear for the NIOS exams of Delhi Board in the whole of Dombivli. This provision is especially useful for middle and high school dropouts from the surrounding schools.The Trust, as part of it various activities, also conducts teacher training for imparting Specialized training in Early Childhood Care and Education, Counselling Skills and Remedial Education, along with several workshops and training seminars for aspiring teachers, parents and like-minded professionals. This ensures a constant supply of like-minded teachers and professionals to withhold the school philosophy.
A child’s first years are memorable…and critically important. Too many young children are not getting the quality early learning opportunities they need to succeed and thrive in elementary school and beyond. As a result, they start school significantly behind their peers, and the achievement gap is born.
