Sibling care is a common factor that keeps older children in migrant families, out of school. To address this concern, Gubbachi Buds, our Early Child Care and Education Programme works with the preschool siblings of children in Gubbachi Connect.
How we do it
The Buds centre runs in an adjoining space. Younger siblings come every morning along with their brothers and sisters and spend the whole day safely and in a stimulating material rich classroom environment.
Along with providing care for younger siblings, teachers engage in pre literacy and numeracy to prepare for school readiness.
