Environments that are healthy, safe, protective and gender-sensitive, and provide
adequate resources and facilities;
Content that is reflected in relevant curricula and materials for the acquisition of
basic skills, especially in the areas of literacy, numeracy and skills for life, and
knowledge in such areas as gender, health, nutrition, HIV/AIDS prevention and
Processes through which trained teachers use child-centred teaching approaches in
