Project Alpha,
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 it into practice. In this phase, we will undertake two programs, one located in rural and the other in urban areas.
During this phase, ECEE will gather data to improve existing services and implement interventions to improve quality and program outcomes.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Childhood Education Ethiopia's believes investing in children’s early care and education in Ethiopia through a holistic approach, will not only help the birth-eight year's population become lifelong learners but will also close the socio-economic gap, raise literacy rates and produce citizens that will be empowered to invest collectively for the advancement of all people.
Early Childhood Education Ethiopia is founded on the principle that love, interaction, play and cultural influences shape the foundational domains of human development. By employing a constructivist curriculum model that promotes learning through exploration, a medium of instruction that celebrates the linguistic diversity of its pupils, application of developmentally appropriate practices including integration of traditional values and using differentiated instructions; it is the goal of this organization to meet the educational and developmental need of every child in Ethiopia through informed practice, policy, and advocacy.
We plan to build preschools, early learning programs throughout Ethiopia, closing the enrollment gap by 75% within the next 10 years.

We have established partnership agreements with various institutions and universities to support, work and create new pathways to support our organizational efforts.
We have a comprehensive plan to begin our work in rural Ethiopia where the need is the highest for children in the birth to 8 population. We will be implementing Project Beta where we will build a facility that will accommodate a large number of pre-primary age school children.
Further, we have liaised with local universities to do teacher training, create a supportive curriculum and provide ongoing guidance.


We have a comprehensive early education model with a PreK-16 (birth to college)approach supported through high-level experts from early education, counseling, child development, workforce development, social work, early intervention, higher education, curriculum specialist, therapists, inclusion specialists, pediatricians and much more. We know children and families in Ethiopia have several challenges mainly due to access, equity, and affordability. We want to mitigate these barriers by putting together a wide-ranging early learning program strategy that not only looks at the classroom where children arrive but considers the environment they come from including stressors such as lack of food, water, living conditions, and much more. We are practitioners, which means our approach is grounded in relevant, current, and evidence-based work.

Project Alpha:
As part of our phased-out projects, we are in the process of completing project alpha where the organization has undertaken a rural pre-primary program located in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. Our project which consists of studying, revamping, and administering various types of interventions is near completion.
Conferences and Seminar:
Since its inception, Early Childhood Education Ethiopia has conducted four highly attended global seminars in collaboration with experts in the field of Early Childhood, Higher Education, the Ministry of Education Ethiopia, Faculty members, and parents to name a few.

Parent Engagement Training:
Further, ECEE held a country-wide parent engagement seminar, a first of its kind, with participation from five universities across Ethiopia. This training seminar, which attracted various stakeholders from institutions, pre-primary education, pediatricians, teachers, administrators, and other personnel, provided a basic and advanced understanding of why the first five years of life mattes and the critical role it plays in human development.
