14-16 OCTOBER 2020


Childcare and early childhood education build a foundation upon which every aspect of children’s development relies. The pandemic is putting that foundation under serious threat. Over 40 million children worldwide have missed out on early childhood education in their critical pre-school year as COVID-19 shuttered childcare and early education facilities. 

We know that optimal brain development requires a stimulating and enriching environment, learning opportunities, and social interaction with attentive caregivers.  Amongst these gloomy times, there are many of us, who are fighting with courage and finding new ways to cope with the unusual situation. At the same time, the crisis is also a strong driver of creativity and innovation. Creativity is at a peak in such circumstances where you need to be innovative in your day-to-day life, work, and survival. Unlock your creativity during this COVID-19 lockdown.

With your overwhelming response and immense support to our previous conferences, Council for Creative Education cordially invites you to ‘Early childhood education online conference’. Let's discuss the creativity and innovation across many nations, especially in early childhood education, in our Online ECE Conference from 14th to 16th October 2020.
