Spatial Analysis of the Provision of Early Childhood Services in Jamaica, Jamaica Early Childhood Commission (ECC)


MGI was contracted by the Early Childhood Commission to conduct a spatial analysis of the provision of early childhood services in Jamaica.  The ECC sought to understand the distribution of ECIs across Jamaica so that informed decision-making could be facilitated.  MGI mapped Early Childhood Institutions (ECIs) across Jamaica, provided GIS training and spatial analyses were also conducted for each ECI in relation to the community population served, the community socio-economic status and available resources.  The analyses also indicated areas that were potentially under-served or over-served by ECIs.
