The research is aimed at establishing the factors affecting! influencing community participation in ECD programmes in Langobaya division, Malindi district Kenya.

childcare. Questionnaires and interview guides were employed and used as the instruments for data collection. The findings from the study revealed the following:

• Community!parents need to be mobilized on the importance of ECD programme.
• ECD teachers have no policy guideline on the terms and conditions of services.
• Most of the ECD centres in the zone have less learning materials provided by the community.
Recommendations were made:
• Community! parents should agree on uniform fees to be paid per child. Community! parents! committees to work on the average salary for the teachers in the division.
• Community should be encouraged to use their resources in the child education.
• Community should organize for fundraising for the construction of classrooms, making desks and buying materials for the ECD programmes.
• There should be a centrally feeding programme at the ECD centre in the zone
