A policy workshop on ‘Early childhood care and education in India: contexts, costs and practices’ was jointly organised by University of Cambridge and CBPS on 17 May 2019 at  University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. The session was from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m..

The workshop brought together colleagues working in the fields of educational psychology, economics, sociology, and international development policy and advocacy to identify and discuss key issues relating to Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) in India. Preliminary findings from the recently completed British Academy funded study by CBPS and University of Cambridge on ‘The contexts, costs and practices of ECCE in India’ was shared at the workshop and this was used to facilitate discussions on policy implications for ECCE investment and reform in India and beyond.
