World Forum Alliance

ACEI has joined 19 other organizations to support the World Forum on Early Care and Education as members of the World Forum Alliance, an initiative of the World Forum Foundation.

The mission of the World Forum Foundation is to promote an on-going global exchange of ideas on the delivery of quality services for young children in diverse settings. This mission is accomplished through convening gatherings of early childhood professionals around the world and by promoting the continuing exchange of ideas among participants.
