The purpose of this research was to study the consistency between the causal relationship model of factors affecting collaboration between local administrative organizations in early childhood education management in Thailand and the empirical data, and to examine the factors which directly and indirectly affect collaboration between local administrative organizations in early-childhood education management in Thailand. The methodology in the research was quantitative, using questionnaires as a research tool. The sample based on simple random sampling and drawing lots consisted of 62 child development centers and 372 participants. The ﬁndings of this study showed that the casual relationship model was inconsistent with the empirical data and therefore had to be adjusted. It was also discovered that only the law, and ﬁnancial and budget limitations have direct effects on collaboration between local administration organizations in early childhood education management in Thailand.
