OMEP is an international non–governmental and non-profit organisation with Consultative Status at the United Nations and UNESCO. Founded in 1948, we defend and promote the well-being and education of children from birth to eight.

Our UK Executive Committee is responsible for directing OMEP activities in UK. We meet several times a year to discuss and plan ways in which we can support children from birth to eight.

If you are interested in joining us then please go to our Membership page.

We welcome as members everyone with an interest in the education and well-being of children and their families. Our members are practitioners, academics, students, teachers, policy makers, local authority staff, and professionals from a range of disciplines and we value the experience of those who are now retired.  We welcome parents and volunteers.

We are looking for members across the UK – why not join us now?
