Finally, large class sizes, high teacher-child ratio, low staff salaries, lack of well trained staff, poor relevance of curriculum, and lack of parental involvement were found to be the major influencing factors affecting early childhood’s quality-education. Therefore, policymakers should be clear with the aims of Early Childhood Education.
