Quality Early Childhood Education and Care for Children Under Age 3
Results from the Starting Strong Survey 2018
The experience of children under age 3 with early childhood education and care (ECEC)
is crucial for their learning, development and well-being and for parents’ return
to work. Despite increasing recognition of the importance of ECEC for the youngest
children, little is known about this sector.
The OECD Starting Strong Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS Starting
Strong) is the first international survey that focuses on the ECEC workforce. It asks
staff and leaders about themselves and their settings, including the practices they
use with children and their views on the sector. This thematic report focusses on
ECEC for children under age 3, an option of the Survey in which four countries (Denmark,
Germany, Israel and Norway) participated. The report answers many questions that are
important for parents, actors in the field, and policy makers.
