Contribution of Indian philosophers in early childhood care and education during the pre-independence period
Author(s): Akshaya E
For the past decades, India has witnessed a drastic change in the field of early childhood care and education. Existing policies and programs in India had ensured considerable growth in investments together with improvements in children's school engagement. But the situation of ECCE during the pre-independence period remained dispersed, concentrated in cities, limited to specific regions of the nation, and only available to those who could afford them. Many philosophers have given their souls to develop a better education system in India. Gijubhai Badheka, Tarabai Modak, Gandhiji, and Tagore are some of the pioneers of the development of ECCE. The study aims to explore the contributions of Indian philosophers to Early Childhood Care and Education before the independence of India.
