The International Conference on Quality Early Childhood Care and Development 2023 (ICQECCD-2023) is organized by the SAIA4ECCD on June 21st, 22nd, and 23rd, 2023, in Bangalore, India.
The conference will be focused on “Curriculum, Teaching Learning Methods, and Student Assessment Approaches Related to Early Childhood Care and Development”. In addition to that, the conference will focus even more on the capacity building of the ECCD teachers, the indoor and outdoor set-up of the ECCD centers, and teaching aids”. “Greening Education for ECCD” will also be discussed.
Early childhood education should focus on the holistic development of children. It should be a joyful learning experience for the children, with love and care. Not only knowledge but also social and emotional skills, communication skills, cognitive skills, and fine and gross motor skills should be developed. Children should have good health and nutrition. Competencies should be developed considering the age and diversity of every child.
Early childhood care and development should be a strong foundation for children. Facilitators should plan, implement, and assess their activities considering the diversity of the countries, cultures, and societies as well as the diversity of the children.
The ultimate goal of SDG 4.2 is “By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care, and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education.”
It is very essential to share the best practices of the ECCD teachers, educators, policymakers, and decision-makers to achieve the ultimate goal. Capacity building and networking are powerful tools to strengthen the ECCD sector globally. The International Conference on Quality Early Childhood Care and Development 2023 is the platform for all stakeholders to upgrade the quality of ECCD.
The conference will be a platform for ECCD teachers’ capacity building and professional enhancement.
The ECCD center owners and management will gain new strategies to overcome the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) situation.
Kunwar’s Global School in Lucknow, India, is the hosting partner for the event.
Keynote speakers will share their best practices, research findings, and new knowledge on themes related to “Quality Early Childhood Care and Development” at the conference. Practical sessions will be handled by the experts for capacity building. Participants will have the opportunity for interactive sessions with children and ECCD teachers.
In addition to that, selected ECCD centers will be awarded based on their performance in 2022.
