Early Childhood

ECD Resource Pack

This Early Childhood Resource Pack is designed to help programme planners and managers understand the basic elements of the best start in life for children and how to most effectively work together to achieve those goals.  It combines advocacy arguments with experiences, exercises and information that can be used to develop skills and understand programming for young children in development and emergency situations.

This second edition of the ECD Resource Pack, based on the feedback from field implementation, includes new topics (such as child poverty), and expands some of the existing modules to include new information in ECD.  It is not a blueprint - it is a set of tools that can be applied in many different ways.  A number of different groups of sessions might be selected depending on the time available, participants' needs and how important child development knowledge is as a training/learning goal.
