About Baatein, Sneh, Khel
Sniffing flowers with your grandma...
Riding a bicycle with your Appa...
Role-playing TV characters with your Amma...
All these nuanced moments of talk, care, and play sow the seeds of the foundation for the person we become in the future!
Dost Education, in collaboration with Ekstep Foundation, is launching an immersive photographic exhibition cum micro-site called “Baatien, Sneh, Khel” (Talk, Care, Play) that showcases the photo-stories of responsive caregiving moments in the everyday lives of six different families in Uttarakhand.
This event is an opportunity to foster conversations on the importance of responsive caregiving and parental role in early childhood care and education through an immersive photo exhibition!
Responsive caregiving is crucial for a child's overall development as the impact of caring and attentive parenting lasts a lifetime! The NCF (National Curriculum Framework) also states that the first eight years of a child’s life are truly critical and lay the foundation for lifelong well-being and overall growth.
Many research papers delve into the concept of responsive caregiving and its importance. Despite this, responsive caregiving remains shrouded in mystery. Do we know what this looks like in the everyday lives of a family in India and the science behind it?
To answer this question and demystify the concept of responsive caregiving, we embarked on a journey to capture responsive caregiving moments across families in Uttarakhand! And now we are ready to show the world the moments of talk, care, and play we captured!
When and Where?
Join the event to experience the moments of Talk, Care and Play in action!
