Research Themes: International
The National Center for Children
and Families, in partnership with UNICEF, has been collaborating
with a group of nations from Asia, Africa, the Middle East,
and South America, to help those countries develop culturally
appropriate early learning standards that specify what
children should know, and be able to do, by the age of five.
This multi-faceted effort includes improvements in teacher training, parenting education, and community health services. Initially launched in six pilot countries, the program is expanding its partnerships to include nearly 40 nations.
