Why study early childhood?
"Studying early childhood means learning to understand how humans have become who they are - every individual as well as all of us as a species. This understanding creates perspectives. Perspectives on the fundamental commonalities of all humans as well as the differences between individuals and cultures, on equal opportunities and health and the things that impede them".

(Daniel Haun, Director)
