Abstract

Marketised and privatised early childhood education and care systems are associated with increasing social stratification and elite formation affecting provision. Evidence from several EU and OECD member states (Lloyd & Penn, 2014; Penn & Lloyd, 2014) illustrates public policies and strategies aimed at mitigating these dynamics. Practical solutions to such risks appear founded in transparent values and principles, agreed in national debates involving a wide range of stakeholders. Such a foundation can be found in alternative conceptual frameworks developed by Moss (2014) and Tronto (2013) which reimagine more equitable early childhood systems. Emerging evidence suggests that certain childcare business governance structures reflecting clearly articulated values and principles may also mitigate childcare market risks. Achieving transformative system change nevertheless remains challenging within rapidly changing policy environments.
