Sharing Web Resources III


The early childhood organization I chose is the International Child resource Institute. The outside links of this website linked to sites of their projects. is a project funded by the ICRI  to give children a place where they can learn through music and movement. is a project that helps children who are made vulnerable by the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Sub-Sahara Africa. is a project that improves the lives of African children orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

I explored the consulting tab and noticed that the ICRI provided consultation in areas such as:

  • child care facility design and development
  • needs assessment evaluations
  • program design and implementation
  • program monitoring and evaluation
  • strategic planning
  • program administration and oversight
  • fund development and fiscal management
  • resource procurement
  • legislative and policy planning support
  • training and capacity building

The ICRI worked with the Central Bank of Malaysia to create a state- of- the art work- related childcare development center. Of its many projects, the ICRI also worked with the California Consortium of Child Abuse Councils to develop a coordinated system of local child abuse prevention councils throughout the state.

The focus of excellence is found through its projects of training educators. In Kenya Watoto Wonder Bus is a mobile training unit used to train teachers and administrators in low-income areas. The National Center for Learning Resources is another unit for training educators as well as providing resources.

In every project funded by the ICRI is a opporutnity for teacher training. The ICRI value education of young children as well the adults who are helping to develop the minds of the young child.

  1. This is the first time I visit your website because usually is a blog is not from BlogSpot I have a hard time posting comments. Anyway I love Project Commotion I visit their website and I fall in love with it. I really wish we can have something similar where I live since I’m a parent of a five year old that is full of energy and love music. I definitely believe that this is an asset since is driven to what children love to make them learn and burn energy 🙂
