The development objective of Developing Strategy for Quality Pre-Primary Education for All and Parenting Education for ECCE is to contribute towards the achievement of Indonesia’s goal of universal provision of quality early childhood care and education (ECCE) by 2030 through support to evidence-based policy and strategy development for equitable, sustainable and high quality pre-primary education and care, and associated parenting education. The purpose of this study is to contribute towards the development of evidence-based policy and strategy for the provision of affordable, sustainable, well-coordinated, high quality, and equitable Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) services, particularly for marginalized populations. The study will use a critical selection of findings and recommendations from the many recent analytical studies and reports as well as from its own field surveys and case studies, to support the following two key MoEC initiatives: (1) the development of a Road Map for a one year ”Quality Pre-Primary Education for All” program throughout Indonesia, as proposed by the Directorate of ECCE; and (2) the development of a supporting program of ”Quality Parenting Education” for parents and caregivers of children of 0 to 6 years of age that can provide communities with the necessary knowledge, attitudes and skills to support children’s growth, protection, and development as well as to increase demand for ”Pre-Primary Education for All”.
