Over the years, the field of early childhood education has undergone several changes, the most recent change being the move into a system based upon analyzing the issues such as social, curriculum and academic staff. This article reviews some recent trends and issues in early childhood education in Malaysia in the context of the overall early childhood community. Drawing from Bronfenbrenner (1998) dynamic developmental systems theory as the theoretical basis, this article studied direct and indirect influences of environmental factors upon the effectiveness of children's learning process. Individual characteristics, family, peers and school contexts as well as broader cultural influences were all implicated in predicting the effectiveness of children's learning process. This article concludes with a discussion of the most recent reform and its consequences for the early childhood teaching profession.
