|Samenvatting||Kathy Bartlett has been involved for nearly 20 years in programmes for children during their early years. Initially she worked as a preschool to lower primary school teacher in California. From there she worked in Honduras for a local NGO which set up ‘family centres’ to provide preschool education for young children in rural Choluteca. Later, in Costa Rica, she undertook her PhD research exploring rural working women’s strategies for childcare and also worked as a trainer for the US Peace Corps’ Integrated ECD Programme which was run in cooperation with local health, education and social welfare departments. Since 1992, she has been working for the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) as Programme Officer for Education with particular responsibility for the AKF’S Young Children and the Family portfolio of projects. In this article, she shares a few questions and ideas on whether and how ECD workers, advocates, supervisors, researchers, donors, and so on, understand and take account of that real engagement; how this is defined by various stakeholders; and how these concepts interact and influence what happens in a ‘real life’ ECD programme.|
