The Grant includes 46 private and 76 mission schools.

The ECE grant was distributed on Thursday 31st May 2018 at the MESC Headquarters in Malifa, by the Acting CEO Afioga Maina Maaola Field where she clearly explained to ECE principals the importance of using these funds wisely and keeping in mind this is provided by the government because of the increasing need to value the development of Early Childhood Education in the country.
