Zee Learn Ltd, India's "Most Trusted organization in Diversified Education" with over 1500 Kidzee Pre-schools is all set for its new endeavour with the launch of Kidzee's Learning Tab and Pre-school Teacher Training Programme. Zee Learn Ltd has taken the amalgamation of learning and technology a notch higher; and created Kidzee Learning Tab with curated content chosen/created by academicians and child-experts. Keeping the needs of the fast growing education sector in mind, Zee Learn is also launching the Zee Learn Pre-school Teacher Training Programme. The programme aims at creating quality Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) educators to bridge the existing gap between the number of teachers available and the number required. The programme will provide ECCE training and certification with a mandatory 1 month internship at Kidzee centers.
Zee Learn Ltd entered into a technical partnership with Metis Learning (Eddy) to create the unique Kidzee Learning Tablet which is specifically designed and customized for the needs of Early Childhood learning- adding apps and features suitable for age- appropriate easy learning. Kidzee Learning Tablet, with its unique module based learning and gamification approach, can be used by parents and children alike as it has a kid's mode under which kids can learn while having fun and parents can use it for their needs too. With over 150 million children in the age group of 0-6 years and extremely limited penetration of formal preschools in India, the Kidzee Learning Tablet can augment the learning for children in the early years. The unique content is layered with quizzes for 250 structured modules whereby Children will get an e-certificate on completion. Zee Learn is venturing in the e-commerce space for the first time, by retailing the Kidzee Learning Tablet online on its own website. Priced at INR 11,999 it would provide access to the larger consumer audience to enable their children to learn the Kidzee way.
