Abstract

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Target 4.2 identifies ‘pre-primary education’ as a strategy to strengthen school readiness and contribute to the quality and outcomes of education, which is supported by the powerful evidence from evaluation research. This chapter explores the opportunities and challenges of delivering quality early learning for all, through a case study of Ethiopia’s plans to scale-up Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE). Ethiopia is one of four countries within Young Lives longitudinal research and policy engagement into the impacts of growing up in poverty on outcomes for children (www.younglives.org.uk).
