“This year represents the first decade since Seychelles embraced an active role in the Early Childhood domain. After 10 years of hard work and progress, in November 2019, the Institute for Early Childhood Development (IECD) was recognised as a UNESCO Global Category II Institute for Early Childhood Care and Development. The geographical scope of the UNESCO Category II Institute means that Seychelles is globally recognised as a leader in this field”.

President Danny Faure
State of the Nation Address, 20th February 2020
