Message from the President

Greetings from the president of Korea Institute of Child Care and Education

Korea Institute of Child Care and Education(KICCE) is a government-funded research institute, affiliated with the National Research Council for Economics, Humanities and Social Sciences under the Prime Minister's Office. KICCE is responsible for comprehensive study and systematic development of early childhood education and care policies.

KICCE was established in 2005 when Korea was suffering from the critical low fertility rate. Since then on, KICCE has greatly contributed to various areas such as child development, work-family balance of parents and national policy development through a wide range of research, assessment and policy development on early childhood education and care.

Every Child is Ours!

Korea Institute of Child Care and Education

Although significant progress has been made in Korea's early child care and education policies, Korean society is still struggling with the extremely low fertility rate. In addition, changes in social structures and value increased the burden of early childhood education and care.

Every child is ours!
As a national policy research institute, KICCE will try its best in ensuring 'the happiness of children and the happiness at parenting' and in making the society become a place where both working parents work and raise a child together and where its family, community, business and nation share the responsibility together.

KICCE will promise to fulfill its national and social responsibility. Your continued interest and support will be much appreciated.

Thank you!

President of Korea Institute of Child Care and Education
