Early Childhood Education and Care Network
The Early Childhood Network was formed at ICSEI in Vancouver, 2009. It consists of a conglomerate of practitioners, researchers and policymakers. When participating in the EC-network you thereby get access to quick way to get information and access to knowledge on Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) in countries of other participants.
Aims for 2017
At ICSEI 2017 in Ontario, the EC-network aims at arranging a symposium on ‘cultural diversity and multilingualism in early childhood education and care’. As in previous years the network gives participants an opportunity to understand, discuss and get inspired from people working to establish, improve or do research on EC-systems in other parts of the world.
Activities during 2016
During the year 2016 the network will be sharing relevant information as new publications and conferences in a Network Newsletter. As a new initiative it’ll be trying to connect the ECEC-settings we’ve visited during earlier ICSEI-conferences in order to support them inspiring each other and for the network to increase the possibility to learn from managers and practitioners in an international perspective.
