The research for this project was compiled from magazines, journals, and books written by professionals who have experienced life in Kenya. Informational also came from personal contact with a native of Kenya. In this paper it can be seen that early childhood education has changed greatly and gained higher importance recently.

The research illustrated the strong connection between culture and education. In Kenya, they are nearly inseparable.
