Working to support policy change through an advocacy coalition in Israel

Prior to 2018, Israel had no formal legislation for early childhood care and education needs. However, the new Supervision Law, passed in July 2018, set out to improve the supervision of daycare services for children under three years old by creating regularised standards relating to staff training and the physical environment in daycares. 

This case study on the Coalition for Education from Birth details how ANU and the Bernard van Leer Foundation, together with 250 members, campaigned for several policy changes to improve the care, safety and education for children under three years old. 

We have commissioned an ongoing series of case studies on our partnerships exploring ways to take services for babies, toddlers and caregivers to scale.

Our partnership with RAND has produced a series of case studies on successful advocacy initiatives for the early years. See this Lessons Map for a matrix describing common themes and elements across all five cases for achieving impact at scale, despite different contexts.
