Emergent Literacy and Math (ELM) Ethiopia: Endline report 2017

One of Save the Children’s programmatic priorities is supporting 4-6 year-old children around the world with quality early childhood care and development (ECCD) programs. The focus is on strengthening school readiness skills so that children are ready to enter Grade 1 and succeed in school. Emergent literacy and math (ELM) skills developed in these preschool years are crucial for later reading and math outcomes.

Since 2013, Save the Children has implemented an innovative ELM toolkit in Ethiopia with an aim to provide targeted training to ECCD and government  class facilitators on how best to support these skills through play and joyful learning, in both pastoralist communities and school-based early childhood centers.

This report reviews the results from an endline quasi-experimental assessment conducted to estimate the impact of Save the Children’s Early Literacy and Mathematics (ELM) programming in Ethiopia and look at trends in the growth and development of children in Afar and South Omo.
