Childhood Education

Childhood Education, the bimonthly journal of the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI),
focuses on the learning and well-being of children 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.

Childhood Education is a benefit of the Professional Plus, Professional, Student, Retired, and Organization membership levels. Members receive both print and online versions of the journal, and unlimited online access to back issues—almost 90 years of information and research about children and education.  Read more about membership categories here.
