Abstract

This article considers the value of elite interviews as a frequently
overlooked methodology in investigations of policymaking in early childhood
education and care (ECEC). We contextualise the discussion within a study that
examines constructions of quality in Australian ECEC policymaking between
1972 and 2009. We conclude that, despite their limitations, the use of elite
interviews can enhance understandings of the complexity surrounding policymaking processes.
