- Early Childhood Education (ECE) has important roles for young children and country’s development. Hence, the Indonesian government has attempted to develop holistic integrated services from various sectors to optimize early childhood education which are able to fulfill a child’s rights. This paper aims to examine the implementation of the holistic integrated approach of Early Childhood Education and development (ECED) in Indonesia as known as PAUD HI or Holistic Integrated ECE (HI-ECE). It used document analysis and on-site visits that include interviews as well as focus group discussion with various stakeholders in three districts in Indonesia. It would figure out some issues and possibilities when the policy is being adopted. The findings suggested that there were three main issues regarding the implementation of the policy, namely understanding, integration and governance issues. Then, it also suggested some best practices of policy implementation such as the most implemented policy when there was a cooperation at countryside level. Moreover, it could be done optimally when there was a responsive approach to local and district needs. Thus, the policy could be relevant to them.
