Consultative Group on Early Childhood Care and Development
The "Coordinators' Notebook" is a twice-annual publication of the Consultative Group on Early Childhood Care and Development. This issue summarizes some important information about early childhood care and development (ECCD); shares case studies of effective examples of ECCD; helps ECCD advocates think through what they may need to do differently; and encourages advocates to develop new and potent arguments that will help ensure increasing commitments to ECCD from governments and donors. After the feature article, "Positioning ECCD in the 21st Century" (Caroline Arnold), it contains the following case studies: (1) Building a Deeper Understanding of Poverty and the Young Child; (2) Towards Improving the Quality of Life for Infants and Young Children in Tanzania: Poverty Reduction & Investing in Early Childhood Development; (3) The Early Childhood Development Virtual University; (4) A Child Rights Approach to ECCD; (5) Evaluative Research on Preschool Initiatives of PLAN Bangladesh; and (6) What's the Difference? The Impact of Early Childhood Development Programmes. A section on news and activities, entitled "Network Notes," is also included.
