Linda Kharemwa, Dr Raphael Nyonje


Abstract: Kenya has set a national goal of attaining Universal Primary Education (UPE) and Education for All (EFA) by 2015. Failure to invest in Early Childhood Development can result in developmental delays, disability hence inhibiting the optimal development and performance of children. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of infrastructure development on the growth of early childhood education centers. This study adopted descriptive survey research design. The targeted population included the 440 teachers and 230 administrators in the Early Childhood Development Centres in Bondo, and Sub-county Early Childhood Education officers. The sample size was determined as 248. Data obtained was cleaned, verified and analyzed through descriptive and inferential statistics frequencies, percentages, cross tabulations, chi-square and correlations. The findings showed a significant positive relationship between stakeholders attitude towards Infrastructure development and growth of early childhood development centres (N=244, C. L. =95 %, r=0.120*, p0.05). Nonetheless, there was an insignificant and positive relationship between policy and school management role on infrastructure development and growth of early childhood education centres (N=244, C. L. =95 %, r=0.067, p0.05) and (N=244, C. L. =95 %, r= 0.040, p0.05) respectively. Association between resource allocation and infrastructure development and growth of early childhood development centers was weak negative (N=244, C. L. =95 %, r= -0.031, p0.05). There is need to nourish positive parental attitudes, sensitize stakeholders on the policy guidelines on Early Childhood Development Education, encourage active parental participation in school initiatives, build capacity of the school board of management on effective management practices and resource mobilization.
