Developing and testing supply- and demand-side interventions to improve kindergarten educational quality in Ghana (anglais)

The adoption of the 2004 national early childhood care and development (ECCD) policy highlighted access to quality kindergarten (KG) education as central to improving early childhood development and learning, and a promising way to prevent developmental delays and foster early learning despite adversity. The quality preschool for Ghana (QP4G) study, supported by the UBS optimus foundation and the World Bank strategic impact evaluation fund (SIEF) and ELP, was launched in 2015. It was designed as a randomized evaluation to assess the impacts of an eight-day KG teacher training program, coupled with monitoring and coaching, on the implementation of the KG-specific pedagogy, classroom quality and children’s learning, and development. The study also tested whether the program will have different impacts in the public and private sectors. This report presents a re-analysis of the midline results, as well as the final results of the evaluation based on the endline data collection. Thus, data collection for the impact results was done between June 2015 and June 2017. The first section provides the project context and describes the interventions. Section 2 details the empirical strategy adopted for the evaluation. The third and fourth sections present the findings and discussion of the evaluation, respectively. The final section focuses on the implications of the findings and the next steps.
