In Greece, Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) runs under two main policy contexts that are defined by the age of children. There is Preprimary Education (Nipiagogeia) where children can enroll at the age of four. Nipiagogeia lies within the jurisdiction of the Hellenic Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs. Before the age of four, children can enroll in Infant/Child Centres (Vrefonipiakoi Stathmoi) and Child Centres (Paidikoi Stathmoi). These run under the remit of Local Municipal Authorities. These centres cater to children between the ages of six months and up to five years old.
