The problem that often occurred in the implementation of early childhood education (ECE) was there were still many ECE apparatuses and institutions that were not aware of the ECE policy, so this study aimed to analyze the implementation of early childhood education policy in Central Sulawesi and it was expected to provide an overview of the implementation of the ECE policy. This study used qualitative research to find out the facts and phenomena that occurred associated with the implementation of the ECE policy. The author used the indicators of Edward III, namely: communication, implementer attitude, resources, and bureaucratic structure.
