Education will inevitably play a key role in the national development. It can be used to enhance the quality of people life. Although education is an important factor for the national development, some countries around the world still face education problems such as education quality, education access, and education relevance. Based on the PISA results in 2015 shows that the average score of reading, math, and science of students in several countries including Indonesia are below international score average (500). Therefore, improving performance in education is crucial to meeting the challenge or reaching a high income status. Although much work has been done to date, more discussions need to be conducted to identify the strategies to enhance the quality of education, especially the quality of early childhood and primary education. This International Conference on Early Childhood and Primary Education is identified as being of importance to education stakeholders in providing them the necessary background to improve the quality of early childhood and primary education

The 1st International Conference on Early Childhood and Primary Education (ECPE) will be held in Malang, Indonesia during 21-22 September 2018.
