Abstract: This paper explores recent trends for children growing up in the State of Andhra Pradesh, one of India’s most populous states. The particular focus is on experiences of pre-school and transitions to primary school. The paper is based on analysis of Young Lives survey data (Young Lives is a 15-year longitudinal study of childhood poverty) collected for a sample of 1950 young children born in 2001, and drawn from 20 sites across Andhra Pradesh, plus two rounds of in-depth qualitative research carried out with a sub-sample of 24 children in four Young Lives sites.
