During the last 10 years, aeioTU has been working to improve the quality and coverage of the ecosystem of comprehensive early childhood care services in Colombia.
aeioTU´s Educational Experience has been evaluated and found to close the development gap between children from high and low income families.
The NIEER Institute from Rutgers University, and Universidad de Los Andes developed a Longitudinal Study with the objective of determining the effects of the aeioTU Educational Experience in the development of children. This study was funded by the Jacobs Foundation, UBS Optimus Foundation, and the IDB; and was led by researchers Steve Barnett, Milagros Nores and Raquel Bernal.
