Shishukanon- Prak Prathomik Biddyaloy


Shishukanon- Prak Prathomik Biddyaloy ( শিশুকানন- প্রাক প্রাথমিক বিদ্যালয় ) is a preschool for children aged 3-5, implemented by Manabik Shahajya Sangstha (MSS) since 2021. These schools are located in remote areas of northern Bangladesh, where we provide education to young children who are at the beginning of their learning journey. We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and timulating environment where children can learn, play, and grow.

MSS believes that every child deserves the opportunity to learn and develop their skills, regardless of their location or background. Our experienced and qualified teachers are passionate about early childhood education and use a play-based learning approach to support children’s development in areas such as literacy, numeracy, social-emotional skills, and physical coordination.Currently, MSS is operating 29 preschools, in Rajshahi- 10, Saidpur- 9, and Thakurgaon- 10. In January 2024, a total of 565 students are enrolled in 29 preschools


MSS wants to make preschool education accessible to families with less financial resources in rural areas by establishing a Shishukanon in a community and providing the children with all necessary educational and play materials. The aim is to offer a range of activities that foster children’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. Preschool education also offers a way to disrupt the cycle of poverty by providing children with the tools they need to succeed academically and socially.
