OMEP : Theory into Practice

The idea for a new OMEP publication blossomed in June 2017 during a meeting of the World Executive Committee. The vision was to create an on-line publication that would complement the organization’s flagship publication, the International Journal of Early Childhood, by focusing on best practices, grounded in early childhood theory and research, and by creating possibilities for practitioners and new scholars to share their work. In celebration of OMEP’s 70th anniversary, this inaugural issue of Theory into Practice illustrates both the shared commitments and the diversity of OMEP’s membership.

Research shows that quality teaching practice in preschool and early childhood settings across the world continues to be a critical factor in supporting children to lead full and purposeful lives into the future. And, yet, quality in early childhood continues to be debated and contested, not just by educators but by economists and world leaders. The whole world has become, and continues to become increasingly complex, unbalanced and fraught with serious issues – economic, environmental, social and spiritual. These issues are both global and local; they are issues that affect us all, irrespective of where the issues are made visible.

OMEP Theory Into Practice, aspires to become a tool to share the knowledge of OMEP colleagues as a community of practice committed to early childhood education and care. The first issues were published in English, and by 2020 the OMEP Executive Committee decided to carry out this third issue in Spanish and French, which are also the official languages of the organization.The fact that it is virtual allows readers to contact people from different areas. This multicultural and geographically diverse view clearly enriches the proposal with a variety of professional and human perspectives. Colleagues from Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Chile, Japan, Spain, Mexico, Russia and Uruguay participated in this edition.
