Education is a fundamental right of children. It is the responsibility of parents and guardians and the government to provide educational services. Along with education, appropriate care is also necessary for young children. Therefore, parents and guardians need to have adequate knowledge on providing education and proper care to their children. In addition to knowledge, their attitude towards providing education and taking care of children needs to be favourable. More importantly, knowledge and attitude have to guide behaviour/practice in real life to ensure that children receive the care and education they require to grow up happy and healthy. With these considerations in mind, various organizations including UNICEF Nepal have been involved in awareness-raising and capacity-building programmes for parents/guardians aimed at the holistic development of children, using key messages on the importance of early childhood development and primary education.
The Research Centre for Educational Innovation and Development (CERID) of Tribhuvan University, in consultation with an advisory committee comprising representatives of the Department of Education, UNICEF Nepal, Save the Children Alliance, Tribhuvan University’s Faculty of Education, and the Innovative Forum for Community Development, completed a Baseline Survey of the Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP) of Parents/Guardians on Early Childhood Development and Primary Education in Nepal for UNICEF Nepal. The survey concentrated on five of UNICEF Nepal education focus districts (Parsa, Dadeldhura, Siraha, Rupandehi, and Bajhang). It is expected that the findings and recommendations of this survey will be useful in fulfilling UNICEF Nepal’s aim of increasing the knowledge of 80 per cent of parents and guardians with children aged 3–5 years and 6–10 years in programme districts on key messages regarding the importance of ECD and primary education by 2010.

Findings are expected to be useful in assessing changes in the KAP of parents/guardians during UNICEF Nepal’s Country Programme for 2008–2010.
