France- Country Profile

In recent years, France has made good progress in bringing further visibility to early childhood development (ECD) and the situation of young children and their families, by delivering policies and national strategies aimed at creating the right conditions for children’s development from the very early years. The report on the first 1.000 days of life, released in September 2020, represents key foundations for the early years, through a holistic approach to education, health, child protection, and parenting support.

The information provided in this Country Profile reflects the situation at the end of May 2021. Country profiles look at key indicators across all the countries involved in the campaign and identify gaps in national data and evidence on early childhood.
