'The triple win of high-quality childcare; for early learning, girls’ education and women’s economic empowerment’

Date: 22 Jul 2021
Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Event Type: Webinar

In this event, high-profile international education policymakers, researchers and practitioners will come together to present evidence on the multi-dimensional benefits of early childhood development (ECD) investment. 

Early childhood development is the foundation of educational outcomes throughout a child’s life. High-quality early childhood services are essential for ensuring that young children are able to reach their developmental potential and thrive. If well designed, early childhood services can also provide benefits that are closely linked to the more proximate effects of early stimulation and learning:

  • Helping to break intergenerational cycles of poverty
  • Reducing the burden of unpaid care on older girls and women, affording them more time to focus on educational opportunities
  • Facilitating employment opportunities for vulnerable groups
  • Helping to foster women’s economic empowerment and inclusive growth
