Workshop International conference on the quality of early childhood education and care

In recent years, early childhood education and care (ECEC) services have received increasing attention from researches and policy makers in many OECD countries. A growing body of interdisciplinary literature shows that attendance of ECEC services of higher quality is consistently positively associated with children’s cognitive and socio-emotional development. This is an important finding. However, the results differ by the way quality is approached and measured. In addition, ECEC services also address parents and families as a whole. To-date, less evidence exists how ECEC quality may matter to outcomes other than child development, including maternal employment and parents’ subjective wellbeing. This workshop aims to present scholarship from different disciplines which investigates predictors and consequences of various aspects of ECEC quality using a variety of data sets.
