Guide on Early Childhood Education Quality Assurance Systems for Africa

This brief provides some considerations for developing a quality assurance system for ECE. It does not guide the exact design choices a country should make in developing its quality assurance system, as there is little evidence that one approach is better than another. As a next step for Together for Early Childhood Evidence and ADEA, we plan to canvass the region for examples of ECE quality assurance systems to share in subsequent publications. Systematic efforts are needed to examine how quality assurance systems improve the quality of ECE services, and more research is needed in this area. As more African countries design and implement quality assurance systems, there will be more opportunities for research, and subsequently, new evidence on good practices in the region.
