Our research group brings together students, researchers, practitioners, academics and policymakers from across the early years sector. We work together to make children’s rights real by strengthening and advancing early childhood research, policy and practice and the way they interconnect. Working together with children and young people, practitioners, and policy-makers locally, nationally and globally.
