The Institute for Childhood Education

Our mission is to provide professional development to early childhood professionals. Our materials are based on best practices and the latest available research in neuroscience and early education. We believe that the care and education of young children begins with an understanding of the basic principles of child development and developmental processes. We seek to help people understand how best practices support the physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of children. We believe that learning should be more than just hands-on, it should be minds-on and it should be intellectually engaging.
