Arctic Preschool Education

One of the critical gaps between the nomadic population and the mainstream population is access to basic education. The objectives of this project are:

  1. to evaluate and assess best practices in the sphere of free pre-school education for Indigenous children in the North (Arctic and Subarctic), including provision of traditional knowledge about state and national history and culture, native and state language, and traditional economic activities;
  2. to arrange the exchange of information with the stakeholders on a regular basis, aimed at sharing the best practices in the sphere of preschool education programs and projects oriented to smooth transitions of pre-school children to elementary school;
  3. to draft educational programs and teaching materials in the sphere of pre-school education for Indigenous children; and 4) to create an official Internet portal dedicated to the Project and implementing its outcomes.
