Research output: Research - peer-reviewChapter (Book)

Abstract

The study and development of early childhood education (ECE) in Asian countries has been influenced by local cultural values, local government policies and Western education philosophy and pedagogical programs, and national and international economies. Early childhood education (ECE) in Asian countries has been through a dynamic history of educational reform. It is noticeably developed in the last two decades in many areas, such as teacher education, family education, and collaborations and curriculum development. This chapter will focus on the crises and changes during the early childhood education reform in Asian countries and conclude that it is essential to consider the interconnection and integration of Western early childhood practices into local traditional ideas and values during the process of contextualization and reform.
