The National Standards for Early Childhood and Care Policy is launched

National Standards for Early Childhood Education and Care Services (0-3 years)

The Ministry for Education (MFED) considers the Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC), as the most important time in the life of children, a period which directly impacts on how a child approaches future learning and social-emotional challenges.  MFED has signalled ECEC as one of the priorities and drivers in its ongoing efforts to achieve the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). After a thorough consultation with all major stakeholders, the Ministry has launched the new national standards, Early Childhood Education and Care Services (0-3 Years) in October 2021. These standards are intended to apply equally to childcare ECEC services operating both in the public and private sectors.
