Early Childhood Development in Romania - Country Profile
Romania has made important progress over the past years in delivering some early childhood development (ECD)
policies and in supporting families with young children. Government commitment enforce for early childhood education and care (ECEC) was enacted in 2020 when ECEC was included in the National Defence Strategy (2020-2024). This broad legislation codifies and operationalises prior laws including, but not limited to, compulsory preschool.
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.
