Childhood Education

Childhood Education, the award-winning, bimonthly journal of the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI),focuses on the learning and well-being of children and youth around the world. Each issue includes articles highlighting various perspectives on innovative classroom practices from around the world; cutting-edge concepts for education delivery; innovative schooling models; child growth and development theory; timely and vital issues affecting education, children, and their families; and research reviews. The journal’s editorial intent is to include a wide distribution of articles from varied countries, and from advocacy- and policy-oriented organizations as well as academic institutions. Articles are peer-reviewed.

• Include innovative research-to-practice teaching strategies

• Provide relevant examples and author vignettes
• Describe how culture, ethnicity, and/or social, political, and economic conditions affect the issues.

Readership
Our readers work with, or on behalf of, young children from birth through age 13. They include child care providers, teachers, administrators, university-level teacher educators, education students, policymakers, advocates. Our readers are interested in practices and policies that advance education and support child well-being from around the world.

Types of Articles
Because the readers of Childhood Education have diverse backgrounds and interests, article style may vary somewhat.
