  2. The newly developed Nursery Diagnostic Assessments were administered as well as the revamped Literacy and Numeracy Assessments for Nursery years 1 and 2.
  3. The Roraima Readers Series which was piloted in 2013 was rolled out nationally.

  5. The Guyana Early Childhood Education Project is being rolled out in the hinterland Regions to improve ECE delivery and output.
