The introduction of Free Primary Education (FPE) by the NARC government in 2003 heralded a new front in the national education system. Many children who had attained school going age who had been denied entry access to education due to poverty got a new window of hope whatever their age. Many thus took up the opportunity to attend school without necessary going through ECD centres. What mattered was whether one had attained the required age and not whether one had passed tests in the ECD centres.

This study sought to establish the effect of FPE on education enrollment in ECD centres in Nairobi. The study was based on a case study of Riruta Zone in Dagoretti Division. Purposive and probability sampling criteria were used in determining the sample of the study. The various strata of the study were purposively selected to ensure that all stakeholders in ECD education are represented. However, individual elements across all the strata were randomly selected. The groups targeted during the study comprised of staff members working in ECD centres, class one teachers, officers in ministry of education and the Nairobi City Council. The total sample consisted of 56 respondents. The study used both primary and secondary data from the sample population. After collecting all the needed data, it was edited to identify inconsistencies and establish uniformity. The data was then coded to facilitate entry of the responses into the computer.
