This briefing is the first in a series of three, providing a quick guide to early childhood education and care (ECEC). It introduces the concept of ECEC, sets out evidence for different approaches to ECEC and relates this to current policy in Wales.
The briefing has been written by Dr David Dallimore from the School of Health Sciences at Bangor University under the National Assembly for Wales Research Service’s Academic Fellowship Scheme to support Assembly Members in their scrutiny of the provision of ECEC.
