AbstractIn this chapter, early childhood education (ECE) in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) or Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore, and Taiwan are compared in terms of (i) separation/integration of childcare services and kindergarten education, (ii) degree of public vs. private funding for ECE, (iii) unique cultural history and influences on ECE, and (iv) government guidelines and policy. It analyzes ECE policy in terms of the glocalization vs. globalization, the Confucian ideal of education, and adaptation vs. adoption. The chapter concludes by suggesting that it is time for ECE in Chinese societies to not just stride ahead but to acknowledge, accept, and integrate the learnings from different eras and societies
