Show Summary Details


One of the largest challenges in improving the quality of early childhood development (ECD) programs and policies is service provider capacity. Often, programs cannot be implemented because of limited ability for service provision. This commentary provides examples of training models that can use indigenous approaches to child development to create opportunities to build capacity in ECD in low- and middle-income (LAMI) countries. With an emphasis on higher learning, and using examples from Africa, this commentary provides useful recommendations for other regions and countries interested in building ECD capacity.

Keywords: early childhood development; ecd technical capacity; centers of higher learning; african institutions of higher learning; indigenous approaches to ecd
