Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE)
In the 2019-23 strategic plan, Strømme Foundation East Africa took a strategic focus on pre-school and lower primary school (grades 1-3). This is meant to provide a strong foundation for children and prepare them for lifelong learning.
Strømme Foundation East Africa’s approach to Early Child Care and Education (ECCE) is a three-pronged with a focus on the learning environment, teacher skills and community participation in ensuring access to quality education. In order to make sure every child survives and thrives, we continue to support an integrated and holistic approach to child survival, growth, and development.
Self-sustaining, inclusive ECCE centres are supported together with women’s savings groups in poor communities of intervention, alongside government-aided and non-profit community primary schools.
- Children between the ages of 3 to 6 years
- Children in the lower primary transition classes (6 to 8 years).
