Several issues have been identified that serve as roadblocks in the achievement of quality in ECCD. These include:
1.enforcement of quality standards in ECCE;
2.problems in standardization and certification of ECCD personnel;
3.limitations of regulators or assessors;
4.lack of harmonization of ECCD programs and services; and
5.lack of support for systematic evaluation and assessment.
Some of the recommendations that emerged from the study include:
1.advocate for evidence-based and culturally relevant frameworks; standards and practices for quality assurance;
2.develop more appropriate supports that would ensure that the standards have the desired beneficial effects on young children;
3.expand government regulations and accreditation;
4.strengthen and improve the cooperative ties between the state and other stakeholders; and
5.enhance monitoring and assessment skills of ECCD regulators or assessors.
