Monitoring and Evaluation

More than ever before governments and development agencies are accountable for what they do and the services they provide. It is therefore necessary to have better measurements and accurate appraisals of the implementation of programmes.

Early Childhood Education

The Ministry proposes to have nearly full coverage (over 90%) at the Pre-school level by 2013. An additional 20% of the 3 to 5 age cohort will be attending Pre-School/ Nursery. To accommodate the increased numbers and to provide purpose built structures in some communities 8 new discrete nursery schools will be built, 20 primary schools will be extended to accommodate nursery classes and 46 classes will be established in primary schools that have space during the five year period. Special attention will be paid to those communities where enrolment at this level is low.
