Preliminary Childhood Development National Strategy 2020/21 (प्रारम्भिक बाल विकास राष्ट्रिय रणनीति, २०७७/२०८८)


The National Policy on Early Childhood Development (ECD) in Nepal, implemented from Fiscal Year 2077/78 to 2087/88, aims to ensure comprehensive development opportunities for all children from conception to eight years old. Recognizing the importance of early childhood development, especially for children up to eight years, the policy emphasizes integrated and quality services. It aligns with global development goals endorsed by various nations under the leadership of the United Nations in 2015. The policy focuses on legal, institutional, and structural frameworks to provide age-appropriate and quality services, ensuring the holistic development of children. It encourages collaboration between the National Planning Commission, relevant ministries, and local bodies, supported by national and international organizations, to enhance access to quality early childhood development services. The ultimate goal is to reach marginalized and disadvantaged communities, providing them with quality early childhood development services in a coordinated and inclusive manner.
