Gaps and Remedies of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Programs of Botswana
Bose, Kabita
Educational Research and Reviews, v3 n3 p77-82 Mar 2008
Five years after the release of the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Policy in Botswana in 2001, it was felt necessary to review the current status of the ECCE programmes with special reference to achievement of standards of quality of education with reference to the recommendations in the ECCE policy. This effort has been supported by the Office of Research and Development (ORD), University of Botswana for conducting a review of ECCE programmes of Botswana. The study included the heads of the ECCE centres of Gaborone, Botswana. A survey research design was adopted for the study. The study used both quantitative and qualitative approaches. A structured questionnaire was used for data collection. The findings showed that the ECCE service providers are trying to adhere to the ECCE Policy document; however a major groundwork needs to be done to provide more trained teachers and a standard, prescribed curriculum. This would enable one to maintain the standard recommended by the ECCE policy document and raise the quality of ECCE programmes in Gaborone, Botswana. (Contains 2 tables.)
