Marini Arumugam, Tamara Joan Duraisingam & Lai Mun Onn
Education is one of the most empowering rights to set a person up for success throughout his or her life. Studies have revealed that early childhood education is a very important aspect of developmental growth that leads to a marked increase in qualifications and earnings. However, neither domestic nor international law focuses on the right to early childhood education. This research analyses the various international and domestic laws in relation to the right to early childhood education and its potential of being recognised as a stand-alone right within domestic and international systems of law.
