Join us in our journey to make all Thai children benefit from a high-quality early childhood develoment program.
Who We Are
The Dek Noi Pattana (DNPF) was established in November 2017 to support early childhood development (ECD) in Thailand. DNPF believes that all Thai children should benefit from a high quality ECD program and that realizing such a vision is critical to Thailand moving from a middle to a high-income country.
The primary focus of the DNPF’s work is to help enhance the training and support provided to ECD teachers and caretakers, mobilize the support of parents and local government officials, and help the development centers become high-quality early learning centers. It is doing so by developing and implementing in some of the poorest regions of Thailand pilot projects for training, coaching and mentoring teachers in high-quality ECD that, in general, have shown excellent results. DNPF is then encouraging local authorities and other stakeholders to replicate and scale up such projects for the eventual benefit of all the 19,000 ECD centers in Thailand. DNPF is also endeavoring to increase national awareness of the value of high quality ECD programs.
