2008
Research Report. Human Sciences Research Council

This paper is one of a series developed to inform the Scaling Up ECD Services (0–4 years) Research Project with the aim of improving child development and significant job creation. Altman et al identify approaches to responsible and effective innovation in the service delivery process to fast-track the expansion of quality services for vulnerable children. The aim is to identify a set of innovations that might be tested in pilot projects within the existing ECD programmes and in partnership with key stakeholders, including government and delivery agents. This paper begins with an overview of what a demonstration project is, and then reviews the objectives of implementing demonstration projects in ECD 0–4. It identifies critical challenges in scaling up quality ECD 0–4, as well as a number of possible institutional innovations that could be implemented and tested as demonstration projects. Finally, it proposes a draft plan for finalising the design of the demonstration project, identifying partnerships, determining sites where the demonstration projects may be implemented, and mobilising resources.
