Singapore's CHILD to host first annual conference in October 2022

The Centre for Holistic Initiatives for Learning and Development (CHILD) will be holding its inaugural biennial conference in Singapore to promote science, innovation, collaboration, and partnership, providing a forum for multiple perspectives to improve the early years for young children. CEI is proud to be a partner of CHILD. The theme of the inaugural conference is: Emerging Issues & Advances in Early Childhood: Knowledge + Collaboration = Transformation. This will explore how outcomes for children and families can be improved through contextualised interventions based on the strong implementation of high quality evidence. The conference will bring together researchers, practitioners, policymakers, educators and organisational leaders in the field of early child development. The focus of the conference will be global, with a special emphasis on Singapore and Southeast Asia.
