Tool 5.4: Implementation Resource Guide
In principle, the sector plan should include implementation strategies that are part of the education sector planning’s (ESP) action plan. In reality, reflection on these strategic choices will continue throughout the implementation of the programme. With this in mind, the Implementation Resource Guide has been developed using the Build to Last framework as its organizational backbone as it ties to the continuous reflections taking place during implementation.

As outlined in the Build to Last Framework, the five Core Functions each need to be developed through targeted, planned and focused efforts. However, it is important to note that the work across the Core Functions needs to be coordinated.
Reforms or improvements in one area should be considered in conjunction with how other areas are affected. Tangible outcomes of an effective pre-primary subsector will be seen not only in terms of increased and equitable access to quality pre-primary services but also enhanced learning and development among children.
Case study: Nigeria - Integrating play-based learning throughout the ECE subsector. Play is one of the most important ways in which young children gain essential knowledge and skills. In this case study, we look at how play and learning through play approaches have been woven throughout the four factors of the enabling environment as well as integrated into each of the five Core Functions in Nigeria.
The enabling environment focuses on four interrelated factors that are vital for advancing the development of the pre-primary subsector: ministerial leadership, policies and legislation, financing, and public demand. Together, these four factors can provide a strong and supportive foundation for an effective and equitable pre-primary subsector.
