About Us

Our mission is to develop and amplify innovative solutions to education challenges that affirm children’s learning and development as the pathway to sustainable futures for all.

Since 1892, Childhood Education International has been committed to one central mission: ensuring children’s access to quality education worldwide. We direct our efforts toward programs and projects that support pre-primary to primary school-age children so they can learn, grow, and develop optimally. We collaborate with teachers, education leaders, families, community leaders, health professionals, government agencies, the private sector, and civil society organizations to provide innovative solutions that make a difference.

Childhood Education International is guided by 10 universal beliefs about education.

Universal Beliefs

The 10 Universal Beliefs About Education are included within our International Principles of Practice for Educators. They inform the decisions we make about how we can best contribute to advancing children’s education around the world.
