INNOTECH RR-12-2013: Quality Assurance in Early Childhood Care and Development in Southeast Asia

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.
