sharEd is a social enterprise focused on making quality learning materials and teacher training affordable. The organization is working to bring a quality play-based approach to preschool classrooms across India.
We believe that every child, no matter where they come from, deserves an opportunity to live up to their potential, and that providing this opportunity requires access to early education beginning at an early age. At sharEd, we believe this is possible when we work together.
For our approach to be effective and sustainable, we also believe that our service must be:
1. Research-backed: The sharEd Curriculum features play, discovery, and exploration as keystones of learning, helping children to develop confidence, creativity, and critical thinking. The curriculum focuses on five development areas, which are critical for primary school readiness: Social Emotional Development, Language Development, Early Literacy, Mathematics, and Science and Health. Furthermore, multiple educational experts were consulted at every stage of the development of this curriculum.
2. Outrageously affordable: The sharEd Curriculum has been designed specifically to provide children with an engaging learning experience at an affordable cost by leveraging affordable learning activities and materials. sharEd’s subscription model allows classrooms to rent a new themed project every month that keeps the classroom exciting for both the children and teacher. The rented materials provide classrooms a diversity of learning experiences throughout the year without the financial burden of continuously purchasing new materials.
3. Contextually Relevant: The sharEd curriculum was created to be culturally and economically sensitive to the different settings in which this product will be used. The sharEd curriculum is flexible and empowers the teacher to adapt it how she/he sees best, using these tools to create a sustainable and positive ECE learning environment at an affordable price and through collaboration with peers.
