Abstract
In the minutes of the first MoE Education Research Council of 2015 (28 May), the Permanent Secretary (MoE) noted the desirability of establishing a Centre for Early Childhood Research. NIE was directed “to draw up an ambitious proposal for the Centre, which could be a standalone centre or part of the larger Learning Sciences initiative”. The Corporate Research Office has since contacted ECDL regarding this request and it was agreed that ECDL can assist in drawing up a background paper and proposal that will outline the state-of-the-art in early childhood research, trends, and future directions. Such a document will also be of benefit to the early childhood thematic area (one of the ER3.0 priority areas) and will provide a starting point for colleagues interested in mounting larger scale research proposal in related areas.
