 The general purpose of this study was to find out the constraints to the administration of integrated early childhood development centres in zone A of Benue State. The study was guided by four purposes, four research questions and two null hypotheses. The research design for the study was the descriptive survey research design. The study was carried out in educational zone A of Benue State. The population of the study consisted of 5036 respondents. The sample for the study was 504 respondents. The instrument that was used to collect data for this study is a four point Likert-scale questionnaire designed by the researcher from literature reviewed. The questionnaire was titled Integrated Early Childhood and Care Centres Questionnaire (IECCCQ).To establish the validity of the research instrument developed by the researcher, the questionnaire was given to three experts in Childhood Education, Library and Information Science and one expert in Measurement and Evaluation, all from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka for face validation. The experts were requested to assess the instrument with regard to the clarity of items, simplicity of vocabulary and relevance of items to the study. Based on the observations of these experts, the research instrument was modified appropriately. The reliability of the instrument was ascertained through trial- testing of the instrument developed by the researcher. Thirty (30) respondents were used. The reason for trial-testing was to determine the internal consistency of the items. Cronbach Alpha was used to ascertain the reliability coefficient. The reliability coefficients for clusters A-D were 0.82, 0.86, 0.77 and 0.88 respectively. The overall reliability coefficient was 0.83. This shows that the instrument was reliable and was used for the study. The researcher, with the aid of three research assistants administered the questionnaire to the respondents. This helped in the smooth collection of the questionnaire from the respondents. Formal permission was sought from the head teacher of the sampled Local Government Education Authority and primary schools. Mean and standard deviations were used to answer the research questions while t-test statistics was used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 level of significant. The finding of the study among others showed that planning, funding, quality control measures and school plant facility constitute constraints to the administration of integrated early childhood development centres in Benue State. From the finding of the study, conclusions were made, the implications of the study were highlighted and it was recommended among others that the ministry of education should try as a matter of urgency to equip the schools and fund the early childhood development centres in other to create an enabling environment for children’s learning.
