This presentation reviews a study that looked at 444 predominantly four and five year olds in Assuit, Egypt in order to understand the skill differences between children in rural, home-based ECCD centers and those in urban ECCD centers.
What skills do children in center-based, urban (government supported) and home-based, rural (Save the Children supported) ECCD programs have at ages 4 and 5?
- How do skills and development differ by children’s age?
- Where should future teacher training and community support for these programs focus?
- Are there differences between the early skills and development of boys and girls?
- Are there differences between the early skills and development of children in urban center-based and rural home-based ECCD centers?
