As presented at the 2015 Asia-Pacific Regional ECD Conference Beijing, China
Since 2012, in order to provide more opportunities for migrant children to receive early childhood education, promote their development, and prepare them for kindergartens, we have launched the Early Childhood Development (ECD) Program at four community centers in Beijing. The Program achieved significant results during the first year it was launched, and was introduced to our migrant community centers in Shanghai and Guangzhou. This essay aims at introducing the measures we have taken to incorporate training of the mothers in migrant communities into the design and implementation of our program. Such incorporation is for the purpose of influencing migrant families’ knowledge, attitude, and actions taken towards early childhood education. In addition, we will explain the effectiveness of these measures tracked using the monitoring techniques we designed.
