How Do Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) Policies, Systems and Quality Vary Across OECD Countries?
In many OECD countries, ECEC services have increased in response to a growing demand for better learning outcomes as well as growing female labour force participation. In recent years, however, the goals of ECEC policy have become more child-centred. Fifteen-year-old students who attended early childhood education (ECE) tend to perform better on PISA than those who did not, even after accounting for their socio-economic backgrounds. Improving access without giving due attention to the quality of ECEC services is not sufficient to secure good individual and social outcomes.
