1 Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys Data Interpretation, Further Analysis and Dissemination Workshop Child Development 1

2 Early Childhood development (ECD): Key Facts Early childhood, which spans the period to 8 years of age, is critical to a child’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Many challenges faced by adults, such as mental health issues, obesity, heart disease, criminality, and poor literacy and numeracy, can be traced back to early childhood. Brain and biological development during the first years of life is highly influenced by an infant’s environment. There are simple and effective ways for families and caregivers to ensure optimal child development 2

3 Access to basic services Home environment Conceptual framework for MICS4  Attendance to Early Childhood Education Early Childhood Development Index Supportive factors:  Support for Learning  Learning Materials: Children’s Books and Playthings Risk factors:  Inadequate care Conceptual framework for ECD in MICS Core ECD domains 3

4 Attendance to Early Childhood Education Programme Definition: Number of children age months who are attending an early childhood education programme / Total number of children age months Importance: improves child’s literacy and numeracy skills & social and emotional development & Enhances school- related achievements; allows women to enter the workforce; increases family & family and community cohesion; increases GDP and public revenues - opportunity to break the cycle of poverty 4

19 Early Childhood Development Index (ECDI) Definition: Number of children age months who are developmentally on track in at least three of the following four domains: literacy-numeracy, physical, social-emotional, and learning Importance: Provides a snapshot of (or a window into) the child’s developmental status at the time of measurement and can be used to measure outcomes of ECD, nutrition or health interventions ECDI needs to be interpreted within the context of other variables available from MICS and other sources 19

20 Early childhood development index (ECDI) Domain Items Literacy-numeracy Children are considered “on track” if they can do at least two EC8. C AN ( NAME ) IDENTIFY OR NAME AT LEAST TEN LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET ? EC9. C AN ( NAME ) READ AT LEAST FOUR SIMPLE, POPULAR WORDS ? EC10.
