Funded by the Central Policy Unit of the Hong Kong Government, this public policy research aims to identify the factors and processes that are pertinent to parents’ decision-making as they select an early childhood education service for their child; examine the roles of socio-economic status, cultural background, and geographical location, and their impact on choices available to parents; analyze the ways in which parents understand and articulate their views about what constitutes an appropriate, quality service for their child and an exemplary provision in general; investigate the extent to which the vision and aims of the voucher scheme have been achieved in the context of parents’ choice of services; as well as make recommendations on policy improvements to achieve affordable, quality early childhood education.
