Activity-based home learning platform ClassMonitor is entering the vernacular learning segment with the launch of a Skill Master Hindi Edition Program as an extension to its ongoing programs.
According to a press statement, the course is designed to introduce Hindi as a vernacular language to early learners in an engaging, active, play-based approach. The introduction of the Hindi Edition Course is closely aligned with foundational literacy objectives outlined by National Education Policy 2020.
ClassMonitor is creating a revolution in home learning education for early childhood with its hybrid learning approach targeted to upskill the children with a blend of traditional and modern teaching methodology. The hybrid learning tools take children to a learning space that combines real-life learning experiences with curated activities. The Hindi learning language is approached in a contextual, integrated manner, and taught through themes that connect to a child’s immediate environment, thereby making learning meaningful and relevant.
The Indore-headquartered startup envisions bringing a revolutionary early childhood education experience and child-parent engagement across the world. The company is focused on creating quality products while promoting openness and creativity by closely watching the customer feedback and evolving consistently.
Founded in 2016 by childhood friends Vijeet Pandey and Vikas Rishishwar, ClassMonitor is currently present in over 1,000 cities in India and has a footprint in more than 12 countries. The ClassMonitor app has over 75,000 registered users, with 50,000 as paid subscribers.
Responding to the latest development, Vijeet Pandey, Co-founder & CEO of ClassMonitor, said,
"With an aim to provide better education learning environment for parents and early childhood, we have designed this course and its activities in progression, to ensure that by the end of the program, the child is able to read with comprehension, speak with confidence, listen and understand, and begin to write for meaning."
The CEO further stated, "The learning material for this course is thematic and comprises activities designed on the ELPS approach (experience, language, pictures, symbols) supported by high-quality material such as flashcards, vocabulary building games, puzzles, worksheets, conversation cards, poem, and story cards, etc., and the kits are designed to target the children aging between 2.5-5.5 years costing Rs 2,500."
With the launch, ClassMonitor aims to cater to other languages and break any barrier in terms of language for early childhood education and home learning programs.
In May this year, the company had raised INR 3.5 Crore ($480k) as part of its pre-Series A funding round from Indian construction company Path India Ltd, UAE-based Calega family office investor group, and Sarvann, a group of Oman-based investors.
