UNESCO World Conference on Early Childhood Care and Education

24.09.2010

447

World Conference on Early Childhood Care and Education will be held in Moscow (Russia), 27-29 September 2010. 

Early childhood is a critical period. Children are most vulnerable and most dependent then on relationships for survival, emotional security and cognitive development. Yet large proportions of the world’s children are denied access to the benefits of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE), which in turn limits the development potential of countries and regions.

Wealth should not be defined as material gain alone. It should also take account of whether countries are able to nurture their human capital with values important in a globalized world: tolerance, a sense of justice and cooperation, respect for diversity and for the environment. The first World Conference on Early Childhood Care and Education addresses the importance of starting early.

The Conference program includes general and special events organized by the scientific and political institutions of the countries participating. Moscow State University of Psychology and Education is helding several Special Events at the Conference.
