Future Prospect

          Overall, Stepping Stones Project model was found to be quite successful in terms of early childhood development through Anganwadi curriculum and also in sensitization of parents towards child care and development through positive parenting programme. This programme has potential for replication in other areas and a Social Franchising business model can be developed utilizing the tools and curricula developed through this programme. Our program hopes to develop a social business model which will build public/private collaborations and work closely with privately run preschools in urban areas. These organizations will be supported to modify their curriculum and replicate our proof of concept with establishment of a chain of parenting schools. These schools will in turn act as a catalyst for expansion of this model in new intervention areas.
