Abstract: When visiting a programme or engaged in an ECD-related activity,we all tend to ask ourselves whether the situation appears to be ‘working.’ Sometimes the sense of what is working is an intuitive, overall impression. Sometimes we are consciously checking off features on a mental priority list we’ve developed through experience.For example: children are: active ✔clean ✔well fed ✔mentally and socially stimulated ✔... setting is: full of materials children can explore ✔safe and well-ventilated ✔... adults are: engaged with children ✔encouraging children to use language ✔... What signals a sense that a programme is working may be quite different for each of us,and is likely to include a whole range of factors that each of us will define according to our own professional experience and goals.
