Introduction

In contemporary times, the world is emerging as a global-village. Innovations and novel practices attempted in different spheres of life, in the progressive and developed countries are having a direct impact on the national progress and growth of developing and under developed nations, in a variety of ways. Further, the progress and growth of a country is essentially linked with literacy and quality of education. The quality of education again is dependent on the teacher preparation and the curriculum prescribed for it. The curriculum must include social realities, issues, progressive and innovative developmental processes addressing concerns that shape the future of the nation. These processes evolve and revolve around a teacher and a learner. To address these concerns and to keep pace with the times, teacher education curriculum needs to be restructured and revised.

The demands on teachers are continuously changing and increasing. Their roles too are changing significantly. It is important that teacher training programs develop dedicated teachers with adequate knowledge and skills who become instrumental in the reconstruction of the society.

Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) for children below 6 years is globally emerging as an area of high priority. This is largely in view of recent research in the field of neuroscience which has established that 90 percent of the brain’s growth occurs by the time the child is 5 years of age. This growth is influenced by not only the nutritional and health status of the child but also the psycho social experiences and environment the child is exposed to during these early years.
