Statement on migrant children which was produced at the World Assembly in Prague, 2018

Migrant Children’s Needs NOW

An Urgent Call to Action in Support of Children

as an Unambiguous Priority in All Global Policy Statements

Regarding Migration and Refugees

 

  • Representing members in more than 70 countries around the world, OMEP, the World Organization for Early Childhood Education, calls upon local, national, and global leaders to take immediate and responsible action.
  • The current situation in the world creates the urgent need for all nations to ensure the human rights of all children, especially the youngest and the most vulnerable, regardless of their migration status. All children must have access to all services and they must not be detained or separated from their families.

 

World Assembly and Conference 2018 – meet our two sponsored students!

This year, we are sponsoring two students to attend the 70th World Assembly and Conference in Prague!

 

The first is Leanne, currently nearing the end of the first year of her Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Education and Care. She has been working in early years for the last eight years, and has spent the last three years working in a deprived area of the country. She recently contacted her MP regarding the ‘Bold Beginnings’ report published earlier on this year!

 

The second is Taiwo, a postgraduate researcher who is currently exploring socio-cultural dimensions of quality assessment in early childhood in Nigeria. Taiwo has developed a quality assessment tool that will be tested in two early childhood settings in Nigeria soon!

 

We are sure that the conference will provide both with a wonderful experience, and next year, it could be you!
