ISSA 2017 explores the major challenges and opportunities we face today in building competent early childhood systems.

Competent ECEC system

The speed of the changes in today’s world requires substantial shifts in the ways early childhood systems are designed, equipped, governed, financed and supported, if we are to capitalize on the tremendous importance that early childhood development has for children, families and communities.

That's why ISSA 2017 is all about professionalisation within the competent system. Keynotes, workshops and fieldvisits fit into three major themes:

  1. competent early childhood workforce and services
  2. a competent early childhood inter-institutional environment
  3. competent early chilchood governance and policies
