MDF along with improving learning strategies will also incorporate parental involvement by building the confidence of children at homes and establishing the trust of parents in schools and teachers. MDF will also focus on child led research activities such as assigning tasks to children to be completed at homes and building their analytical skills that will lead towards their intellectual development in their future.
