Unit of measurement



The participation rate in organized learning (one year before the official primary entry age), by sex as defined as the percentage of children in the given age range who participate in one or more organized learning programme, including programmes which offer a combination of education and care. Participation in early childhood and in primary education are both included. The age range will vary by country depending on the official age for entry to primary education.


Pre-schooling is organized at schools with special classes equipped with furniture and teaching aids. This training is provided to children who, for one reason or another, are not enrolled in kindergartens, but need to be “trained” to enter first grade. Children are taken care of by specially trained teachers. Pre-schooling, unlike kindergarten, where children stay all day, lasts three to six hours per day. Learning process is aimed at solving issues of socialization and adaptation of 6-year-olds to new conditions and teaching children basic skills of communication, cooperation, interaction and overcoming psycho-social barriers.

Rationale and interpretation

The indicator measures children’s exposure to organized learning activities in the year prior to the start of primary school. A high value of the indicator shows a high degree of participation in organized learning immediately before the official entrance age to primary education.

Method of computation

The number of pre-schooled children should be divided by population aged 6 and multiplied by 100. The calculation shall follow the formula:

y = n / N * 100 , where n - number of children in pre-schooling programmes N - population aged 6.

Comments and limitations

Participation in learning programmes in the early years is not full time for many children, meaning that exposure to learning environments outside of the home will vary in intensity. The indicator measures the percentage of children who are exposed to organized learning but not the intensity of the programme, which limits the ability to draw conclusions on the extent to which this target is being achieved. More work is needed to ensure that the definition of learning programmes is consistent across various surveys and defined in a manner that is easily understood by survey respondents, ideally with complementary information collected on the amount of time children spend in learning programmes.

Quality assurance

Logical and arithmetic control of recorded data is carried out.

Data availability and gaps

Indicators are disaggregated by territory, type of area and form of ownership.
