• Moving more capital towards early childhood care and education

Early Childhood Care and Education

More than just preparation for primary school, ECCE aims towards a holistic development of a child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs to build a strong foundation for lifelong learning and well being.

Huge gaps persist in providing quality ECCE to all children in India.

In India, there are
>160M children aged
0-6 years

The Integrated Child Development
Services – a state administered
ECCE programme-only covers 38M
children across 1.4M Anganwadi
centres

Extensive resources are
needed to offer effective
ECCE programmes

Harnessing the power of the network

The AVPN ECCE-United Platform is a coalition of ECCE champions who are committed to mobilizing more private resources towards ECCE interventions. By engaging policymakers, key capital providers and intermediaries, the AVPN Platform will bridge resource gaps to improve systemic education outcomes.
