This study analyzes human resources for kindergarten in Egypt, focusing on the provision of kindergarten programs as part of the public education system and as part of the private sector. The report is organized in 10 parts. Following an executive summary and introductory remarks, the report provides an inventory of public and private kindergarten services. Next there is a description of teacher training programs at public universities. Following this, public and private Egyptian kindergartens, focusing on the type of training teachers receive, the kindergarten curriculum, teacher salaries, kindergarten as part of the primary education system, and costs of providing teacher education are described. The private sector nursery and kindergarten programs falling under the auspices of the Ministry of Insurance and Social Affairs is also discussed. The sixth section focuses on kindergarten programs offered through the private sector, including religious organizations, nongovernmental agencies, and commercial enterprises. This is followed by a discussion of the construction efforts to expand the number of kindergarten classrooms available. The eigth section presents projections of numbers and costs for achieving the goal of having 60 percent of eligible children in kindergarten by 2010. Next, the importance of the leadership and commitment of the Egyptian First Lady in promoting early childhood programs, the financial demands upon the government, the likelihood that the private sector will not be able to share half the burden of building and equipping kindergartens, and the possibility of stretching the timeline to reach the 60 percent goal are addressed. The tenth part of the document provides conclusions and recommendations, which include extending the time allotted for meeting the 60 percent goal to address areas of concern. The report's appendices include additional data tables and a list of persons met during the task mission to Egypt. (Contains 22 tables.) (KB)
