AbstractThis study examined associations among preschool attendance, home learning activities, stunting status, and early child development using data from the validation study of the East Asia–Pacific Early Child Development Scales (EAP-ECDS). Participants were children aged 3 to 5 years from Cambodia (n = 1178; 30% stunted), Mongolia (n = 1226; 11% stunted), Papua New Guinea (n = 1697; 50% stunted), and Vanuatu (n = 674; 44% stunted). Child development was directly assessed using the EAP-ECDS and children’s preschool experiences and home learning activities were reported by parents. Preschool attendance, preschool duration, and home learning activities were positively related to child development for non-stunted and stunted children, demonstrating that stimulating interactions in the home environment and early childhood education serve as modifiable factors that can help to reduce the negative effects of stunting on children’s cognitive and non-cognitive development, and highlighting the importance of “nurturing care” for the development of both non-stunted and stunted children.
