Rigorous research shows that high-quality kindergarten (KG) education is critical for children’s successful transition to and success in primary school. Adopting and promoting a developmentally appropriate KG pedagogy is critical to promoting high quality pre-primary education for all.
Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) led two impact evaluations—Quality Preschool for Ghana (QP4G) and Fast-track Transformational Teacher Training (FTTT)—which focused on KG teacher training at both in-service and pre-service teacher training levels respectively.
Following the completion of the QP4G and FTTT studies, IPA hosted an Early Childhood Education (ECE) Impact Evaluation Results Dissemination event to bring together a diversity of ECE stakeholders to foster conversations around the provision of quality kindergarten education in Ghana. As part of the event, IPA introduced its newest kindergarten evaluation being led in partnership with Lively Minds, to improve early childhood development in rural Ghana through scalable low-cost community-run play schemes. Finally, Sabre Trust, one of IPA's implementing partners, unveiled its brand-new documentary on the Fast-track Transformational Teacher Training Programme.
