Abstract

Korea has different curricula in place for different provisions: the standard child care curriculum covers all children aged zero to five in child care. In parallel, there is the national curriculum for kindergarten for children aged three to five attending kindergarten. Recently, Korea set out a national, common curriculum for all children aged five, the Nuri Curriculum, and plans to extend the common curriculum to cover ages three and four, aiming at providing a more continuous child development process for young children in ECEC. Finland, New Zealand and Scotland (United Kingdom) have an integrated curriculum framework covering either all ages in ECEC or children in early education and beyond.
