Young Lives: Materials on Early Childhood Education

Young Lives is a unique international study of childhood poverty based out of the University of Oxford that follows the changing lives of 12,000 children in four countries – Ethiopia, India (in Andhra Pradesh), Peru and Vietnam – over 15 years – a timeframe set by the UN to assess progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. Young Lives collects a wealth of information about the children’s material and social circumstances, as well as their views on their everyday lives, their hopes and aspirations, set against the environmental and social realities of their communities. To supplement our ongoing discussion on the importance of quality Pre-K education, we are providing an invaluable list of resources and publications from Young Lives on the topic of early education.
