Early Childhood Education: Home

This guide provides starting points for research in Early Childhood Education.


Welcome to the Early Childhood Education Research Guide.  This guide will help you to identify resources (books, databases, websites, and more) that will help you research topics in this subject.

Early Childhood Education is Early Childhood Education?

Early childhood education is concerned with the learning experiences of children below the age when compulsory schooling begins (usually age five or six). In terms of organized educational programs, it generally encompasses kindergartens (enrolling mainly five-year-olds) and pre-kindergartens and preschools aimed at children starting at about age three.

Early education is as vital to both individual and society well-being as the education of older children and young adults and equally worthy of public support.
