Summary

This note presents the evidence on the role that simple early childhood stimulation inputs can play when they accompany nutrition inputs, and how the joint intervention is crucial to the development of young children - which lays the foundation for their capacity to learn and to lead healthy and productive lives. This note also provides examples of how early childhood stimulation can easily be integrated into current policies and programs at relatively low marginal costs.
