ECEPP - Researching Early Childhood Education Institutions, Policies and Practices

About us

Members of this research group are interested in questions related to childhood, early childhood education and care (ECEC), child development, and ECEC institutions situated in different societies. The group explores childhood, children’s lives and professional´s work as shaped by different relations, such as institutional, generational, discursive or material. Projects focusing on ECEC explore the politics, policies and changing systemic provision of ECEC, and transformations related to professional and pedagogical work; relations between different environments of children; and social, cultural and everyday spaces of ECEC, and inequality and difference.
