MYA/Early Childhood Care and Education in Myanmar


Increased access and improved learning and development of children in early grades. The goal will be achieved through three outcomes: Outcome 1: Access: Children’s early learning and development is supported by increased access to ECCD services and the new Foundation Year of Basic Education for children aged 5 years Outcome 2: Quality and Learning Outcomes: The quality of ECCD services and Foundation Class learning environments have improved in all SC supported schools Outcome 3: Policy engagement: National policies, practice and implementation increasingly based on child rights and child centered approaches in National education sector planning and programming processes Save the Children will work through two major areas – Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) and Transitions to pre-primary and primary education. In both of these areas, the focus will be on Access, Quality and Advocacy/Policy Engagement. The project will provide children in the target areas with a sound foundation to their early learning. We will do this through an innovative and holistic early learning programme. The project will combine ECCD opportunities and enhance school readiness, and improve and support the learning of children in the new Kindergarten Year. The project's duration is 2 years (2015 - 2016). Total budget is 3 529 412€ out of which the MFA's share is 3 M€.
