Early Childhood Development and Intervention is crucial for all children. iRockit’s commitment to Early Childhood Development includes training for non-profits working with families of very young children.
iRockit as a part of its outreach program works with Mobile Crèches, an organization working for the rights of young marginalized children.
iRockit does a baseline evaluation and assesses the developmental progression of each child in Mobile Creches at the Connaught Place branch and shares necessary intervention techniques.
iRockit also conducts training sessions for the Master trainers at Mobile Creches quarterly.
This helps them understand the key areas of concern for each child by identifying developmental delays, which are addressed through targeted play and stimulation activities.
