Daniel Osoro Obara, Dr. Reuben Mutegi

ECDE financing has not been adequately investigated since the inception of the new constitution which devolved its governance and management to the county government. The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of county government financing of physical facilities on access to pre-primary education in Baringo central sub-county, Baringo County, Kenya. The study adopted descriptive survey design where the target population included One hundred and twenty-four (124) head teachers, One hundred and twenty-four (124) ECDE teachers, One hundred and twenty-four (124) PA representatives, One (1) ECDE Sub County Coordinator Officer and One Sub-County Education Officer in Baringo Central Sub-county, Kenya. The teachers and PA representatives who participated in the study were selected using simple random sampling. The data analysis for descriptive statistics and inferential statistics was computed using Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS). The main findings and results of the study shows that there is a statistically significant relationship between the physical facilities influence on access to pre-primary education in Baringo central Sub County, (P<0.05). The study concludes that county government financing of physical facilities has generally enhanced the access to pre-primary education in Baringo central sub-county Baringo county. The study recommends that the amount of money disbursed by county government to build physical facilities is not enough, hence schools should have various incomes generating activities. This will generate more funds to support the county government educational subsidies. Suggestions for the further studies have also been given which include; conducting a study of this nature in wider areas for instance covering the whole of the Baringo County or other Counties, similar study to be carried out in public day secondary schools in Baringo County to establish influence of County governance financing on access to public day
