The Encyclopedia on Early Childhood Development is produced by the Centre of Excellence for Early Childhood Development and the Strategic Knowledge Cluster on Early Childhood Development. It is intended for policy-makers, service planners and service providers and for parents.
It brings together articles written by internationally renowned experts on topics having to do with the development of young children, from conception to the age of five. Each of the 49 topics addressed is explored from three perspectives: development, services and policies. In addition, for each topic there is a synthesis that provides, in a simplified format, the key points that will be most useful to practitioners and planners. This synthesis addresses three questions: What is the importance of this topic? What are the most up-to-date and conclusive data available on this subject? And what can be done to improve services, policies and research?
