The Right Start: Investing in early years of education

In order to provide quality preschooling for children living in urban slums, evidence generation is critical to understanding the opportunities and constraints. 

In this context, Save the Children partnered with the Centre for Budget and Policy Studies (CBPS) to undertake research studies on Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) to examine the status of implementation of ECCE in India and its gaps, as well as to undertake an analysis of costs of alternative models.

The report focuses on the status of ECCE and its implementation, generates evidence from three states (Telangana, Odisha and Delhi) and budget analysis of Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) and non-ICDS models.
