Tool 1.3: Worksheet
Defining ‘Pre-Primary’ or ‘Early Childhood’ Education in Your Country Context
Use the worksheet to define the subsector in your country context.
This worksheet may be useful as a focus for a TWG meeting or as a discussion guide with other bodies, leading to a summary of the way or ways that pre-primary or early childhood education is defined in your country. It will also anchor the definition of subsector vision and priorities, and ultimately inform how to frame and define ECE/PPE in your Education Sector Analysis and Education Sector Plan. Having consensus on the definition will also help determine how ECE should be implemented and captured in results frameworks for monitoring over time.
