the little ones. Inspired by the thought from Elizabeth Hardwick we are introducing a series of workshops on nurturing reading habits. We plan to introduce more innovative learning exercises before the summer vacation ensues.  This will encourage children to explore the world simultaneously.”

The workshop is designed by Shamsa Mistry a graduate in MSc research methods and analysis.
