ABSTRACT
The article reports on the challenges faced by early childhood education programs in several countries. The major challenge of early childhood education is that it has not been included in public education services in Bangladesh. In Fiji, the acknowledgement of kindergarten teachers to public service so they can get a decent salary and good working conditions is the greatest challenge. The major challenge facing early childhood education in India is the apathy expressed by the government in developing statutory requirements for assessment and curriculum in the crucial formative years.
