Early Childhood Development

The ultimate goal of Early Child Development (ECD) programmes is to improve young children’s capacity to develop and learn. A child who is ready for school has a combination of positive characteristics: He or she is socially and emotionally healthy, confident, and friendly; has good peer relationships; tackles challenging tasks and persists with them; has good language skills and communicates well and listens to instructions and is attentive. A child who is ready for school has less chance of repeating a grade, being placed in special education or being a school drop-out.

Mayflower hopes to raise US$800,000 per annum for a period of 5 years to provide Early Childhood Development programmes in Ebute-Metta. Per annum it is hoped that up to 8,000 children will benefit from an ethos of learning and achievement.


The Mayflower Foundation's work focus is on five main topical areas, with each of the areas having four programmes.

The education programme areas are:

1. Early childhood development
2. Whole school development
3. Maths, science and technical education
4. Bursaries and scholarships

The five key initiative areas are:
