About Us

National Working Committee

The Early years of a child's life are indeed the foundational years... everyone associated with early childhood wants to safeguard childhood, to give children their rights, to make available for our teachers, be it in balwadis or International schools and parents the best international research about child development and learning.

The Early Childhood Association is an initiative that addresses all of this and much more and brings together all stakeholders be it teachers, media, parents, experts and more, so that childhood years cane be enriched.

This initiative needs like-minded people like you to come together in an endeavour to make this initiative a success.

The Early Childhood Association is set up with the vision that all the preschools, balwadis, N.G.O's, children's activity classes, parents, student teachers, media houses, companies that deal with children's products, in short everyone connected to young children can all come together to advocate, discuss, learn and share, connect and bring about a change in the quality of care development and learning in early childhood in India.

The Early Childhood Association is a registered body and has three levels :
  • Advisory Panel led by eminent educationists, doctors and celebrities.
  • A working committee that will be elected from members every two years.
  • General members.

The Early Childhood Association aims to be that one stop connection needed by all for the enrichment, networking, awareness and advocacy of childhood and everything that affects it.

The Early Childhood Association wants to help professionals, teachers, people who deal with children through their work in balwadis, day care centres, rural crèches, teacher training colleges and entrepreneurial network (basically anyone who contributes directly or indirectly into the caring of a child) and be able to provide them with resources of every sort. This could range from information, latest research, training and ideas and perhaps solutions and counselling.
