Eurydice and Eurostat Report Key Data on Early Childhood Education and Care in Europe 2014
The Eurydice Key Data on Early Childhood Education and Care in Europe 2014 report, published jointly with Eurostat, contributes to informing policy efforts on early childhood education and care by combining statistical data and qualitative information to describe the structure, organisation and funding of early childhood education and care systems. It analyses issues which are important for the development of quality services identified through European policy co-operation, such as access, governance, quality assurance and affordability. It aims to provide insights into what constitutes high quality early childhood education and care through internationally comparable indicators. The report covers 32 countries and 37 education systems.
