The Lion City (or Singapura) presents a fascinating story of rapid transfor-mation and success. This holds true whether speaking about the economy, the well-being of the citizenry, the nature of the overall services provided, or the evolution of early childhood care and education (ECEC). This chapter unveils how such progress came to be achieved in ECEC, delineating the challenges that such success evokes. Ultimately, it is a story of carefully hewn harmonization and balance.
