A capacity building program that seeks to empower early childhood education facilitators specifically those located in rural ECE centers


Early Childhood Education success depends on 1) Access and 2) Quality.

Raise standards of pupil  achievement and promote high  quality learning and teaching in Early Childhood Education Centers. 

Encourage teachers to talk  about what makes good  pedagogical practice, the  elements that need to be present  for effective teaching and successful  learning to take place.

Evidence is growing on the educational, social and economic benefits of quality early childhood education for children and the society. In particular,  quality pre-primary education has shown to boost school readiness, learning achievement and education system efficiency.

The inclusion of pre-primary and early childhood development in the United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development 2015–2030 is evidence of this increased global attention. Specifically, “By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education” is the second target of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 on education (UNESCO 2016, ).
