Early Child Development (ECD) learning is a basic foundation that prepares children for primary school, globally embraced as part of Universal Education for every child. Kenya recognizes education for every child within educational and sustainable development policies such as Vision 2030. Although country is currently implementing a free primary education which was established in 2003, preschool, the foundation of ECD learning is not funded by the government leaving parents and non profit organizations as the sponsors (MOEST, 2005). The reading habits of preschool remain sketchily understood. This research aims to assess the challenges and needs of preschool children in a peri-urban urban set-up. The research is guided by the following research questions: What are the attitude of children on school and learning? What factors influence children attitude on school and learning? What factors and resources enhance early child development learning? The review of related literature focused theoretical, empirical, policy and other pertinent content analysis. Field research formed the primary data for the study while resources from booksellers, libraries, internet and Ministry of Education formed the main secondary data. The primary data is summarized using SPSS; then merged with secondary data and interpreted to draw the main trends about children reading habits.
