For the First Time, 22 Govt Schools in Hubballi Introduce Nursery Education

Government schools in Hubballi have started providing nursery education to students with the view of increasing the number of students taking admission in class I.

In a first-of-its-kind initiative, 22 government schools in the Hubballi Urban block have introduced nursery education.

Thus, parents in the region can now avail the advantages of government schools without having to worry about spending large sums of money on getting their kids admitted to private kindergartens.

This step was taken by Umesh Bommakkanavar, Block Education Officer (BEO) Hubballi Urban, after he studied the reason behind lesser number of students being admitted to class I in government schools.

“We realized that it’s because of the absence of kindergarten, where they could get pre-school education. So we sought permission from higher authorities to start nursery school for the children above the age of 4 years,” he told The Times of India.

The pilot project began with enrolments in June and about 450 students are now studying in kindergarten at government schools. These classes are not like anganwadis and children are taught properly in the form of rhymes, numerals, alphabet and games. After the pilot being successful, Umesh Bommakkanavar has sent a proposal for implementing the complete project, to the education minister.

According to Lalita Koppad, headmaster of a government school in the area, 25 students have joined so far and the number is increasing. The classes are held from 10am to 1pm and if this proposal is approved, the number of students in government schools will increase.
