Childhood Education: Innovations

Childhood Education: Innovations is a bimonthly publication of the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), published for a global audience working to create positive, sustainable futures for children and youth by developing and seeking out innovative solutions to education challenges. Our target audience includes practitioners in schools, nongovernmental organizations, and community-based organizations; education academics interested in innovative ideas and practices; and global education advocates in foundations, government agencies, and businesses.

We are looking for articles that explore cutting-edge thinking and practices for education delivery and reform. We are particularly interested in cross-disciplinary and cross-sector solutions to specific education challenges. Articles could describe organizations, practices, or projects that are taking truly innovative approaches to education, or they could present new perspectives on an existing practice that results in an innovative approach.

Childhood Education is a benefit of all ACEI membership levels. Members receive online and print (Blue and Gold memberships only) versions of the journal, and unlimited online access to back issues—over 90 years of information and research about children and education.
