President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to officially launch a four days international Conference on Early Childhood Development (ECD) conference which is underway here in Nairobi. The Conference has gathered over 500 delegates from over 30 countries most from sub-Saharan Africa. The delegates are collaborating to support ECD efforts geared towards enhancing social and economic development in Africa. Kenya has enrolled over 77.1% learners to ECDE Centers up from 60% enrolment a decade ago. But the country grapples with the challenge in facilitating the said, since the grade level is devolved to counties.
