Says Sashwati Banerjee, Director, Sesame Street Preschool, “Sesame Street was built around a single, breakthrough insight; that if you can hold the attention of children, you can educate them. We are ushering in a new generation of global citizens with the confidence, skills and cultural awareness that they will need to thrive to become global citizens. This means nurturing children with lessons about growing happy and healthy, as well as academics. Our curriculum is based on over 40 years of insight into how children learn best and spans across six key areas of early childhood development—cognition, language, social, emotional, physical and cultural diversity. We are also in line with India’s National Curriculum Framework.”
