Consultancy, Review of the 2001 Early Childhood Care and Education Policy and development of a new policy framework- UNICEF Botswana

Justification/Background
The Ministry of Education and Skills Development (MoESD) in Botswana is launching a reception programme (1 year pre-primary) in January 2014 with 121 primary schools (out of about 750). This is a transition measure towards a full national 2-year pre-primary education programme. The transition is expected to take 5 years until the full pre-primary programme is available nationally. The transition period is also cognisant of the ambition of the government to promote 0-6 year old Early Child Development (ECD).
Similarly, the Ministry of Health (with mandate to secure the health of mothers and young children) and the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development (with the mandate of to secure adherence of the Children’s Act 2009, the Act that brings the UNCRC and the African Charter on the Rights of the Child into law in Botswana, and responsibility to provide 0-6 services) have been developing services for young children in the 0-6 age bracket to promote Early Child Development (ECD).
In this context of change and renewed government activism in the area of ECD, the 2001 ECCE Policy needs to be reviewed and updated. Given UNICEF’s long-standing support to the Botswana Ministry of Education and Skills Development (MoESD)[1], this represents a new opportunity to support the Botswana Government to fulfil its ambition for all young children, particularly in the context where only about one-fifth of learners access a form of pre-primary education and where the integration of early child services (eg education, health and social services) needs to be enhanced.
