- Orient 2,000 personnel from the existing day-care centres (Akinbote et al 2001, p. 156).
The ECCD strategy is to catch/reach children wherever they are. As noted by an anonymous writer on the project, about 2,045 ECCD facilities in ten UNICEF assisted states have been established. The facilities are located in market places, churches, mosques, community halls/centres, pouches and as annexes in primary schools. Home based facilities in rural and urban poor areas are also being supported. complete project work pdf
There has been a great interest in the project by the various communities. This is demonstrated by the 175,000 children under -six years who benefited from the ECCD project. Moreover, about 7,000 pre-school age children have been de-wormed through the cooperation of some other agencies. The ECCD has made some achievements which have been summarised as follows: complete project work pdf

Generally speaking, the ECCD project has been helpful in the provision of child care facilities. It has been able to raise the level of awareness of parents, particularly in the rural areas on why and how to stimulate their children’s social, psychomotor and cognitive development. The ECCD project has also shown that collaboration and co-projects development are possible for the proper development of children; it is therefore not good enough for the government as you learnt in the last unit to encourage private efforts in the provision of pre-school establishments. With the FGN/UNICEF initiatives, many children who could have been deprived of the stimulation and care necessary for their development have benefited from early childcare and development programmes. It is only hoped that the programme will not be abandoned. The programme must be sustained so that millions of other deprived children could benefit from it. complete project work pdf
