UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.

For every child, help


The UNICEF Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (ECARO) supports work in 22 countries, coordinating regional efforts and supporting the local efforts of Country Offices across the region. With a special commitment to meeting the unique rights of young children ECARO endeavors to support targeted and coordinated efforts to mainstream Early Childhood Development (ECD) principles in health, nutrition, education, child protection, and emergency planning and response. Furthermore, building on the robust corpus of evidence on early childhood development, UNICEF promotes implementation and scale-up of evidence-based, and effective innovations and multi-sectoral packages aimed at ensuring that all children, including the most vulnerable, reach their development potential.

Recognizing that different age groups of children, as well as children who develop differently, require specific packages of services and support, the ECARO approach to ECD is composed of three distinct and mutually inter-dependent and reinforcing pillars: a) Young Child Wellbeing, focusing on the first 1000 days or children from conception to the 3 years; b) Pre-primary Education, focusing on children 3 years to school entry age, and, c) Inclusion from the Start of children with developmental difficulties and disability, focusing on support to children 0-school entry.
