The Bernard van Leer Foundation in the Netherlands is a strong advocate and support of early childhood development. This post shares information on the summer course the foundation sponsored at the Harvard Kennedy School.
“In Jamaica, over 90% of 3-5 year olds regularly play, read, or sing songs with an adult in their household and over 80% of them have access to pre-school, sowing the seeds for better performance in school, and better health and wellbeing in later life. In nearby Honduras, less than half of young children regularly engage with adults in this way, and only one in five go to pre-school. What would it take to bring quality early childhood services to many more kids? More and more countries are investing in programmes for healthy child development, but rolling them out at scale is proving a challenge across the board, especially to the poorest and hardest to reach.”
