Unlocking Cambodia's Future

Policy Brief 1: Improving Access to Quality Early Childhood Education

Despite being recognized as a critical foundation for future learning and development, many children continue to lack access to good quality early childhood education (ECE) services, especially in remote areas.

Beyond primary school achievement, early childhood learning impacts brain development, health, behavior and economic opportunity. Improving access to quality early childhood education can ensure the next generation of children – the “motor” of Cambodia’s continued growth – have the best start to become skilled, educated and healthy workers.
