From 1 May 2011, the Centre for Equity and Innovation in Early Childhood will become the Equity and Childhood Program, in the Melbourne Graduate School of Education’s Youth Research Centre (YRC).
This move formalises already strong links between our team and the YRC, and we are looking forward to even greater collaboration.
Our staff will continue their current teaching, supervision and research.
If you have any queries, please contact: Dr Kylie Smith (8344 4084 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Centre for Equity and Innovation in Early Childhood (CEIEC) was established in November 2001 at the University of Melbourne. Since it began, the Centre has developed a strong research culture and international reputation for its work in equity and change research, professional development and teaching. The Centre for Equity and Innovation in Early Childhood (CEIEC) and its work are premised on the following beliefs:
high quality research is a core component of improving outcomes and experience for all children in early education
an interdisciplinary approach that draws on networks of interest around social justice and key equity issues is an important component of producing high quality knowledge about equity, children's rights and early education.
