Early childhood education and care systems in Europe
National information sheets 2014/15
The national information sheets provide a concise overview of the key features of early childhood education and care systems in Europe. All the EU Member States as well as most other countries participating in the Eurydice network are covered. The reference year is 2014/15. For each country, a diagram shows the main elements of the organisation of the national system in early childhood education and care with a short description of the main types of provision. There is also information on access issues such as age range for place guarantee and participation rates and fees, on quality issues... such as group size regulations and education guidelines, and on current reforms.
