TAIZAKO : Integrated Early Childhood Development project

© Jocelyn PIGET


In Madagascar, pre-school education has expanded due to the annual increase in public-sector educational services on the one hand, and the increase in the number of public and community Centres d’Activités Préscolaire (CAP – Preschool Activity Centres), on the other. However, analyses and estimates of the access rate to these centres in 2014-2015 revealed wide disparities: low public provision of pre-school education, or almost none at all in rural areas, and insufficient parental involvement in pre-school development activities.

Project objective

Strengthen the Centres d’Activités Préscolaire (CAP – Preschool Activity Centres) and the development of community initiatives; In addition to supporting the quality and upgrading “conventional” preschool centres, propose experimenting with the diversification of the system; Support the establishment of spaces for early-learning and stimulating activities for the development of children aged 0 to 4, without dedicated infrastructure and at an affordable cost (playgrounds and environments conducive to exploration); Mobilising and raising awareness of early childhood education issues and developing a “parental education” component.
