|ECD PROGRAMMING FOR CHILDREN AGES 0-3:SUCCESSES & CHALLENGES||Children acquire foundational skills in all developmental domains from the earliest ages; however, most programming for children ages 0-3 in Rwanda has focused on the health and nutrition needs for securing children’s physical development. In response, Save the Children and its partner, Umuhuza, initiated its 0-3 Early Childhood Development (ECD) programming to particularly address language, communication and wider cognitive development deficits, while simultaneously highlighting holistic child development in all domains.
|ECD PROGRAMMING FOR CHILDREN AGES 4-6: SUCCESS &CHALLENGES||The available ECD services do not give enough emphasis to Early Literacy and Maths (ELM) skills development, which is crucial in order for children to attain the necessary school readiness skills. This includes support by parents or other caregivers at home, as well as the form of teaching and learning taking place in classrooms. In response, Save the Children targeted its ECD programming for children ages 4-6 to focus on training parents on simple activities they can do with their children at home, and working with teachers and the government to improve the way children are taught in ECD centres or pre-primary classrooms.
