About the OECD Thematic Review of ECEC and the Czech Republic's participation:

Invited by the participating countries, OECD expert teams evaluate each country's policy, programs and provision for children from birth to compulsory school age. Prior to the review, participating countries publish a background report describing current policy and practice, and outline the challenges that ECEC policy faces in the coming years. After the expert review, the OECD publishes a country note that discusses the issues observed, and suggests solutions and recommendations for the consideration of the competent authorities.

The Czech Republic was the ninth country to be visited in the review. Prior to the visit, a background Report on ECEC policy in the Czech Republic was prepared by a working team, co-ordinated by Mr. Jaroslav Sekot at the Higher Vocational Pedagogical and Social Secondary School in Prague. After analysis of the Background Report and other documents, a review team composed of an OECD Secretariat member and three experts with diverse analytic and policy backgrounds visited the Czech Republic from 1-10 March 2000. The Czech Republic country note was published in December 2000.
