Helpdesk report: evidence on ECD approaches in Malawi

This rapid review looks at the evidence on early childhood development (ECD) models (including integrated approaches) in Malawi and in the sub-Saharan African region, examining the impact on child development and learning. Most of the evidence from Malawi focuses on community based childcare centres (CBCC) which are the main centre based model for ECD in Malawi. These centres are designed as a central point for the delivery of preschool education, care, nutrition and health services, particularly for vulnerable children. Evidence from elsewhere is also considered.
