The 4th International Conference on Early Childhood Education


International Conference on Early Childhood Education is a biennial conference organised by the Early Childhood Education Program, Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia. The first conference was held in July 2011 under the name of the 2011 International Early Childhood Studies Conference. Since the first conference, the Early Childhood Education Program of Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia has been committed to consistently organising the conference every two years. The conference has been developed into a peer-reviewed conference and in 2016 the papers presented at the conference were published in an online proceeding by the Atlantic Press. For the 3rd ICECE’s full proceeding please visit: https://www.atlantis-press.com/proceedings/icece-16


This year, the Early Childhood Education program will hold the 4th ICECE and we will publish selected papers presented at the conference in a proceeding published by CRC Press (Taylor and Francis Group). We will publish papers that are not accepted for publication by CRC Press in a proceeding with ISBN. For more information about  the conference this year, please click http://icece.event.upi.edu



Distinct from other period of time, the 21st century is characterised by so much knowledge -easy to access but hard to grasp, borderless and hyper-connected society mediated by the internet, high competitiveness -not only within a country but across countries, high mobility, and widening economic discrepancy as neoliberalism has strengthened its influence on every sector of human life. The children of today will face many things that have not been invented or discovered yet, sometime beyond expectations. Scholars and teachers of early childhood education need to be aware of these astonishing changes. The way we see children and childhood cannot stay the same, so does the way we educate the children of the century. This conference aims at opening a discussion about finding alternative approaches, theories, and best practices of early childhood education for a rapidly changing and globalised society.
