Early learning: Lessons from scaling up
This edition of Early Childhood Matters looks at the question of how to scale up early learning provision without sacrificing quality. Articles consider lessons that can be learned from national-level experiences in South Africa, Kenya, the US, the UK, Macedonia, Cuba, Chile and Peru, as well as examining lessons at an organisational level with input from Reggio Emilia in the US, India’s SEWA, the Caribbean’s FDCC, ISSA in Central/Eastern Europe, and the OECD. Other articles discuss what “quality” means in the context of early education services, outline the World Bank’s new SABER-ECD tool to collect evidence on what works, and ask how interactive technology can help to scale up early learning. Printed copies can be pre-ordered and will be available soon.
