New Delhi: Central Minister for Education and Skill Development Dharmendra Pradhan launched the National Curriculum Framework for Foundational Stage for evaluating the learning standards of children between ages 3 and 8. Nurseries or balavatikas that prepares the child for formal schooling too would be commenced. In the first stage, these would be introduced in 49 Kendriya Vidyalayas in the country.

The draft of the National Credit Framework that evaluates the skills of students from nursery to PhD levels was introduced a few days ago. The latest framework for the nursery and primary schools has been launched as part of this.

The framework in the initial stage has been designed based on the theme of ‘Panchakosha’ — the vital life forces that move through the body.

There are five parts to this: Sharirik Vikas (physical development), Pranik Vikas (energy), Manasik Vikas (mental development), Boudhik Vikas (intellectual development) and Chaitsik Vikas (spiritual).

The Minister also said that nurseries or balavatikas would be opened at all schools under the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) from next academic year onwards. Instructions would be given to implement this in state government-owned schools too.
