Coordinators' Notebook, n18 1996

This issue of the Coordinator's Notebook focuses on the quality of Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) programs. The bulk of the issue is devoted to an article "Quality in ECCD: Everyone's Concern" (Judith Evans), which reviews the need for a definition of high quality in ECCD programs and discusses how diverse stakeholders define quality. This article also proposes a process of determining locally-relevant criteria for quality that reflects indigenous cultural values and aspects of child development that have been universally validated through cross-cultural research, and presents a series of program examples that define and specify indicators of quality. Also included in this issue are regional profiles of UNICEF-supported ECCD programs in South Asian, East Asian, and Pacific nations (Sheldon Schaeffer). Early Childhood Care and Development programs from Sri Lanka and Viet Nam are detailed. A "Network Notes" section includes letters to the editor, information on the activities of regional networks, international organizations, upcoming international meetings, available publications and videotapes, and a calendar of events. Contains 38 references. (KDFB)
