Embracing the new two-child policy era, challenge and countermeasures of early care and education in China, Xiumin Hong, Wenting Zhu, and Qun Ma

""Crafted from a research project that lasted for three years, this book examines the impacts of China's universal two-child policy through the lens of education and focuses specifically on early childhood. The book provides a projection of numbers, but also predictions and judgments as to the supply and demand of service resources in early childhood education. It attempts to reveal the attitudes and views of families and stakeholders on the universal two-child policy and presents public policy requirements for the quality of early childhood education. In addition, it analyses possible problems and challenges in current kindergarten layouts and resource allocation. Lastly, it aims to provide references and bases for formulating the plan with regard to Chinese preschoolers, the supply guarantee of future early childhood education and the construction of public service systems. Offering rich insights into the current and future status of education in China, this text will be of interest to students, scholars, and researchers of sociology, early childhood education, contemporary China studies and East Asian educational practices and policy.
