HoD's Message

Early childhood education is the cornerstone of thriving societies. This principle, echoed throughout history by developed nations, recognizes the critical importance of pre-school years in shaping productive and healthy citizens. Why? Because these early years lay the foundation for:

  • Optimal brain development: Research points to preschool's crucial role in forging crucial neuron connections, impacting how children learn, think, and behave throughout their lives.
  • Improved health and academic outcomes: Studies consistently show that preschool participation leads to better nutrition, health, and educational success, both in the immediate and long-term.
  • Enhanced social and emotional skills: Preschool fosters crucial social, emotional, and cognitive development, equipping children for success in school and life.
  • Reduced social inequality: Investing in preschool programs benefits children from all backgrounds, narrowing the achievement gap and promoting social mobility.


We envision a future where every Ethiopian child can reach their full potential, nurtured by quality early childhood education delivered with love and encouragement.


Our mission is to empower Ethiopia with a generation of capable, responsible, and committed ECCE professionals equipped with the knowledge, skills, and passion to shape the lives of young children.
