Children ready for school l.jpg

KEY ISSUES

Delayed and inadequate growth and development (low birth weight , malnutrition, micro nutrient deficiency affecting brain development and learning)

Increasing number of orphans (maternal mortality, conflicts & HIV/AIDS)

Lack of access to quality basic services for young children, especially in disadvantaged communities

LESSONS LEARNED

No one single ECD program model applicable to all national contexts: there is a range of options and examples (to be evaluated)

The quality of the programs is key (training , appropriate materials, secure environments)

ECD programs have demonstrated their impact on access, retention and success in primary school (reducing drop out and repetition), ensuring gender parity.

Partnerships, collaboration & coordination are essential for a holistic response to children’s rights & development needs.

Serious problems in the early grades of primary

Highest dropout/ repetition rates in the first years

Large number of under and /or over-aged children

Large class sizes

Language of instruction different to that of home

Early primary teachers without adequate training Long distances

Limited school/ community links.

LESSONS LEARNED

Training & motivation of teachers are crucial

Pedagogic material (even local or home made) make the difference

Children learn better in their first language

The size of group/class and the Teacher/ Child ratio is important
