The trends of policy research onto non-public preschool education –findings from scopus database




Non-Public Education, Preschool Education, Educational Policy


Public education is not only an option for early childhood education in countries around the world; this makes non-public preschool policy even more important when the objectives, content, and programs are met and all issues related to early childhood education of non-public forces can contribute to this important level of education. With data from the Scopus system and the quantitative bibliographic method, this study aims to provide a general picture of how research trends in non-public policy on early childhood education have been studied. The results show that the number of non-public preschool policy research studies is not much, although the number has gradually increased in recent years. Publication is mainly in developed countries and in the field of medicine. Therefore, there is a need for more detailed studies on each aspect of non-public policy on early childhood education by region, level of development, industry, and interdisciplinary trends in this policy issue.
