Studies in neuroscience, development economics, cognitive and biological sciences indicate that ECE lays the foundation for both short term benefits for both the individual and society. This includes improved school readiness which is linked to efficient school transition, better learning outcomes and completion rates, as well as long-term benefits, including improved health, employability and national development. Studies which demonstrated these positive effects of ECE were mainly based on disadvantaged populations, mainly in the global north and in particular the US. However, due to these many advantages, ECE is globalised as a justice tool and therefore, we set out to evaluate whether some of the short term benefits identified among disadvantaged children in the global north can be accrued among refugee and non-refugee children in Uganda.
