Applying the Standards: Improving quality childcare provision in East and Central Africa

This is a Save the Children publication focusing on quality childcare standards for children. It documents the learning and experiences of participating agencies implementing quality childcare standards in four countries in East and Central Africa. Each of the agencies utilized the standards set out in Raising the Standards, published by Save the Children in February 2005. Applying the Standards aims to help childcare agencies, managers and practitioners implement the quality standards, regardless of the nature of the childcare provided. Furthermore, the experience of the participating agencies demonstrates that the application of quality standards will provide immediate and direct benefits to children and that quality standards are achievable, even in resource-poor contexts.
