Abstract: As the CRC was being reviewed and ratified, those in the early childhood field had high hopes that it would provide them with a legal basis for getting governments to devote more resources to programming for young children and their families.Many people turned to Robert Myers, a known spokesperson for the field as a whole. Thus, he undertook an analysis of the extent to which the CRC did – or did not – provide a strong basis for the creation of holistic ECD programmes. What follows is a critique of the CRC that highlights its lack of clarity in some areas, and suggests ways to remedy its inadequate treatment of early childhood care and development.
