New Delhi, 12th February 2024: Burlington English, a leading global education provider, onboarded Dr. Swati Popat Vats, the President of the Early Childhood Association of India, as an advisor for the Burlington English Early Years Programme.
The recent National Curriculum Framework for Foundational Stage 2022 stresses play-based learning materials for children aged 3 to 8, an area Dr. Swati has extensively worked on throughout her career. Dr. Swati’s philosophy of ‘Kiducation’ binds the realms of education and entertainment. Aiming to manifest the same vision, Burlington English, with its 40-year-old legacy of language education amongst all age groups, is dedicated heart and soul to making education less daunting and delightful for the learners.
The recent collaboration with Dr. Swati Popat Vats will pave the way for alleviating the effectiveness of the company’s Early Years Educational Kits. Mr. Amit Baveja, the Managing Director of Burlington English India & South Asia, said: “Burlington English’s vision has always been to keep up with the latest developments in the field of education and not only make it accessible to all but also enjoyable to learners of all ages. The collaboration with Dr Swati is a significant move. We believe bringing together like-minded experts with a deep passion for education will enable young learners with top-notch, high-quality products and services.”
Dr. Swati Popat Vats, President ECA-APER, stated, “As President of the Early Childhood Association, I am honoured and proud to be the advisor for Burlington English for their Foundational Years Programme books. Burlington English is known for its quality and excellence in materials for students and teachers, and now they are creating quality teaching- learning tools for foundational years. Foundational years are the brain development years and require inquiry-based, play-based learning materials, be it for literacy, numeracy, cognitive skills, or socio-emotional development. The Burlington English Early Years Educational Kits will be in sync with the NCF 2022, thus supporting schools in ensuring that young children get the best start in holistic education. Proud of this association.”
Ms. Leena Singh, Publishing Director, Burlington English said, “We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Swati as our adviser. Her expertise will be invaluable in creating developmentally appropriate learning materials for students in the foundational stage and designing research-backed curriculum support materials for our teachers in line with the NCFFS, 2022. It’s an absolute honour and truly feels magical!”
Early childhood education demands sensitivity, understanding, and impact-based research, all of which Burlington English has striven to embody in its learning modules and products. The collaboration between the two pioneers in early education promises an innovative and impactful encounter, which we eagerly await!
