TREE engages a broad range of practitioners, targeting them at their ability level and supporting them to facilitate ECD programs with playful learning approaches. For example, TREE offers bridging courses for practitioners who lack formal education prior to their entry into accredited training programs.
TREE provides practical guidance to support practitioners’ use of playful learning. For example, TREE trainers encourage practitioners to organize their classrooms according to different themes to encourage different types of play. Practitioners receive other practical lessons including developing their own toys from locally available resources and developing lesson plans.
TREE-supported toy libraries increase opportunities for play among communities, allowing practitioners, caregivers, and community members to borrow educational toys for supporting play activities in various environments.
