By identifying and analyzing all 55 studies that provide reliable causal estimates, the report provides the most complete, credible evidence to date on the post-early childhood effects of early childhood interventions. It serves three important functions. First, it provides analysis on early childhood interventions whose sustained effects have been evaluated across six areas of human development. Second, it examines how effects change—both within a population (yielding shared prosperity implications) and over time. Finally, the review aims to improve the quality and coverage of ECD knowledge by enumerating commonly observed evaluation challenges and identifying research gaps on the question of benefits beyond early childhood.

This review on early childhood development (ECD) research aims to make a contribution to building the knowledge of policy-makers and implementers. The National Integrated Early Childhood Development Policy, which was approved by Cabinet in December 2015, makes laudable progress through its ambitious comprehensive view of ECD. However, translating policy into practice is always challenging. Through engaging with this document, policy-makers and implementers have the opportunity to be better informed, and hence better able to engage with their work in improving the lives of  children in South Africa.

The economic rationale for investing in young children goes beyond improving quality of life during early childhood; it hinges on the belief that the benefits of these investments persist into school age and beyond. This report is the first systematic review devoted exclusively to investigating this theory.
