The Indonesia Early Childhood Education and Development (ECED) Project
This complete report and policy briefing focuses on the Government of Indonesia’s pursuit of a number of initiatives related to Early Childhood Education and Development (ECED). These include increasing access to early childhood education centers and developing and formalizing Holistic Integrated ECED.
This policy brief provides an overview of the ECED sector and uses findings from an ongoing World Bank-supported ECED Project to make preliminary policy recommendations to guide these initiatives. This brief shows that the ECED Project has had several positive effects, including increased enrollment rates and higher developmental outcomes for children. But it also suggests that these outcomes might have been higher if home environments were more supportive of child development. The analysis supports several policy recommendations ranging from the need to raise community awareness on the importance of early childhood development to the need for communities to raise funds in order to maintain financial viability of project centers.
