Designed to study programs, gather information, apply and integrate into practice using two schools as our model institutions.
SUPPORT OUR PROJECTS
We believe children learn best when their culture, community, traditions and environment are used as the vessel to transmit knowledge.
Phase 1, Project Alpha: Shimbit Elementary
Early Education Ethiopia is grounded in applied research to inform practice, policy and advocacy. As such, the objective for Project Alpha is designed to engage in deep program study, gather data, apply and integrate into practice.

The Environment as the Third Teacher in ECE
We often overlook the role of the environment in an early childhood education program. Environments, when crafted with intentions, take an influential role in how the child manages their day, and how the teacher/instructor/caregiver enhances their educational plans...
