Inclusive and equitable education provides all learners with the capabilities to become economically productive, develop sustainable livelihoods, contribute to peaceful societies and enhance their individual wellbeing. This technical brief describes how Gender-Responsive Pedagogy for Early Childhood Education (GRP4ECE) contributes to achieving the fourth Sustainable Development Goal.
GRP4ECE, developed by VVOB and the Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE), refers to gender-responsive pedagogy that is tailored specifically to the context of young learners and early childhood education. It takes into account the specific setting of ECE schools and classrooms and provides pedagogical guidance which is
appropriate to the age and developmental levels of young learners.
GRP4ECE empowers preschool teachers and school leaders to create learning environments where harmful gender stereotypes are challenged and addressed. This lays the foundations for young children to grow up freely and to explore and develop their unique interests, talents and capabilities.
