Integrating early child education in sectoral planning

A lack of investment in quality early education compromises children’s learning and increases inequality. To respond to this challenge, this project will support the effective and strategic integration of pre-primary education within education sector planning processes in five low- to middle-income countries.

Building on a proven approach that supports early learning and the development of early child education, the project aims to strengthen the capacity of education systems with resources and knowledge to implement quality early childhood education programs at scale, and to increase the use of information on early childhood education in sectoral planning.

The consortium of institutions that will undertake this project will adapt, enhance, and scale up a proven approach that supports early learning and development of early child education; develop a comprehensive e-toolkit of resources to mainstream early childhood education into education sector plans; mobilize global knowledge to inform policy, planning, and practice in the developing countries; and strengthen the capacity of national and international stakeholders on early childhood education policy, planning, and implementation.

The project was selected through a global call, initiated by the Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange, to scale the impact of proven educational innovations in developing countries.
