Early Childhood Development in Hungary - Country Profile

Hungary has made some progress over the past years to create early childhood development (ECD) policies and support families with young children. For example, the number of places in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) services for children under three years of age (nursery/crèche) have slightly increased due to the creation of flexible types of services, namely, small nurseries in settlements with fewer children, as well as nurseries at workplaces so that parents have day care facilities close to their work.

First Years First Priority is a Europe-wide campaign set up to advocate for prioritization of early childhood development in public policies, with a particular focus on families and children who are at greater risk of discrimination and exclusion.
