The need for early childhood education in the global society is not over-emphasized. Nations the world over strengthen and improve the quality of this educational bedrock. The Federal Republic of Nigeria has been critiqued for dwindling educational productivity with a view to maximize creative potentials and skills and, prioritize Early Childhood Care, Development and Education (ECCDE) now neglected to the private sector. However, the National Policy on Education (2014) is silent on the approach of regulating, care giving and administration of ECCDE. This study exhibited the status-quo of ECCDE in Nigeria, related comparative studies of other contemporary nations and, emphasizes the significance of ECCDE in Nigerian society. These are with a view to project a pragmatic model using Integrated Early Childhood Development (IECD) approach. The IECD was experimented and found practicable, beneficial and justiciable to introduce and adopt. The study recommended collaboration of professionals as antidote to learning challenges, health issues and effective care of Nigerian children rather than the cultured fragmentation strategy.
