The World Organization for Early Childhood Education (OMEP) finds among its members important professionals in the fields of pedagogy and education, intellectuals, activists and other professionals committed to early childhood (0 to 8 years old). The critical thinking and action-taking of our group has strengthened the production of different documents in response to diverse issues that affect boys, girls and their families.
World Declarations: they are public documents that put forward political and pedagogical principles and intentions, which stem from OMEP’s World Assemblies, so they are endorsed by all the National Committees that are part of them. World Declarations cover topics and issues regarding ECCE, and their goal is to: 1) coordinate their actions and those of each committee, and 2) demand the inclusion of ECCE in the political agenda of governments worldwide. In other words, the manifest is a document that sheds light on issues and puts forward ideas in a firm manner, with the goal of making changes and progress in favor of ECCE.
National and Regional Declarations: they are documents that respond to issues in context and the local political and pedagogical topics regarding ECCE.
Position Papers: they are texts that present an opinion about a problem related to ECCE. They serve as useful tools for advocacy work to defend early childhood and young children’s rights.
Adhesions: OMEP also participates in writing and promoting other manifests of NGOs that share its principles and goals.
