Early Childhood and Primary Education: Transitions in the Lives of Young Children

Early Childhood in Focus is a toolkit for child rights advocates. By setting out clear messages emerging from academic research, it serves to inform, encourage, and provide leverage for successful rights-based policy advocacy on behalf of young children.

This second issue deals with the global challenges of education for all, especially for the youngest children. It looks at the implications of growth in early childhood education and care, including a reappraisal of traditional concepts of school readiness, and a review of strategies required to ensure continuity in children’s experiences of successful transitions.
