It is relatively a new area combining health. nutrition. security, early childhood education, stimulation, social, emotional and physical development. The pre-natal care of the child is also related to mother and post-natal care including related comprehensive interventions. Good quality early childhood programs have positive impact on survival. growth. development and further learning in primary education and beyond. Governments have the primary responsibility to formulate early childhood policies and guidelines. Through these policy documents, the vision, goals, objectives, interventions and expected results of the government are expressed. The ECCE documents also contain the program contents, modalities of organization, operation, coordination. monitoring and institutional arrangements to implement policies.
