This paper is the final contribution to the series of studies developed for the Scaling Up ECD 0–4 research initiative. The central objective of the series was to provide solid evidence on what might be required to rapidly scale up ECD 0-4 to an acceptable quality so as to meet service delivery objectives, in the current South African context. The primary service delivery objective is to improve the development outcomes of vulnerable children. The secondary objective was to expand employment opportunities. The purpose of this paper is to identify approaches to responsibly and effectively innovating in the service delivery process to fast-track expansion of quality services aimed at vulnerable children. The aim is to identify as set of innovations that might be tested in pilot projects within the existing ECD programmes and in partnership with key stakeholders, including government and delivery agents.
