Focusing on improved Early Childhood Development is a game changer, as the First 1,000 Days (during pregnancy until 2-3 years of age) are a golden window of opportunity, where most of our physical, social, emotional, intellectual and cognitive development happens, and nutrition plays a key role.
In 2022, the Namibian Government in close collaboration with Unicef Namibia developed an ECD Curriculum and an ECD Resource Guide for Educarers, Parents, and Care-givers of Children in Namibia aged 0-2 years.
These documents are an invaluable addition to the already existing Early Childhood Curriculum Framework for Children aged 3-4 years, from 2013.
All documents are available here:
