|Samenvatting||The discussion in this article is based on the wider context of the experience of the People’s Institute for Development and Training (pidt) over many years in organising non-formal schools in rural India.|
It also takes into account a study that PIDT did in collaboration with the Bernard van Leer Foundation, “Acculturation of the child to schooling – a multiethnic study”. Though the study mostly dealt with
primary school-ready children in non-formal education (NFE2) schools between the ages of 6 and 14, it provided useful insights into how pre-school education should meet children’s developmental needs, thus opening villages to possibilities for integration and change without compromising indigenous values and skills that have sustained them so far.
