The study examined the learning environment as a challenge to the provision of quality early childhood education in public primary schools in Esan West Local Government Area of Edo State, Nigeria. The descriptive survey research design was adopted for this study while a total of 117 teachers were sampled from a population of 468 in all the public primary schools in the locality. Data was collected using random sampling. The instrument used was a questionnaire entitled “Challenges of Early Childhood Education Questionnaire” (CECEQ) while the mean and standard deviation was used to answer the research questions in the study. The findings revealed there are no appropriate school facilities and learning materials in public schools for the teaching of the pre-primary school pupils in Esan West Local Government Area. Hence, it was recommended that the relevant authorities such as the ministry of education, among other development agencies, should facilitate the provision of adequate instructional materials such as toys, books, charts, educational media technology and school facilities such as toilets and game equipment so as to ensure the holistic development of preschoolers.
