This initial exploratory study examines the governance and finance of ECS in three countries using an in-depth qualitative approach. The methodologies and tools provide an innovative strategy built upon the literature of governance and finance to understand how to improve access, quality and equity of  ECS. Cross-country analyses reveal key emerging trends in ECD systems governance at different  levels and around crucial dimensions, including actors, coordination, policy architectures, and  local-level perspectives. The findings of this study have implications for strengthening systems of  global ECD systems research.
