Supporting Meaningful Interactions in Early Childhood Education and Care
Children’s learning, development and well-being are directly influenced by their daily
interactions with other children, adults, their families and the environment. This
interactive process is known as “process quality”, and leads to a key question – which
policies set the best conditions for children to experience high-quality interactions
in early childhood education and care (ECEC) settings?
This report discusses five main policy levers and their effect on process quality,
focusing particularly on curriculum and pedagogy, and workforce development. It presents
indicators covering 26 countries and jurisdictions, 56 different curriculum frameworks,
and more than 120 different types of ECEC settings.
