Welcome to the ECD Evaluation section of our site. This section provices information about ongoing work that Succes By 6 and a number of partners have undertaken in BC to develop shared measurement evaluation systems.
The Early Childhood Development [ECD] Evaluation project created a shared measurement evaluation and reporting system for two types of early childhood development programs in BC:
- parent education and support programs
- community capacity building initiatives
Shared measurement evaluation – using common tools for a range of different programs with similar goals - is quite different than evaluation of a single program or numerous programs of the same kind. There are many benefits to both funders and agencies, including: reducing duplication, providing information for program improvement and allowing for province-wide and regional reporting.
The project was led by a cross-sectoral group of BC funders and agencies with funding support from the Max Bell Foundation and the BC Ministry for Children and Family Development, and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.
