The Early Childhood Seminar Series was founded by Marek Tesar and Maria Cooper in 2013, as an opportunity for researchers, academics, teachers and the wider community to engage with top New Zealand and international academics. This Seminar Series is aimed at all who are interested in early childhood education, the early years and in childhood studies. It has created a dynamic space for networking and ongoing discussions across disciplines and institutions. The seminar series for 2014 is funded and supported by grants from PBRF, North Shore Teachers College Trust, and a Faculty of Education Events grant.
As a research project, the Early Childhood Seminar Series connects researchers and academics in early childhood and childhood studies, to collaborate on diverse projects and publications. Expressions of interest or any questions should be directed to the Co-directors of the Early Childhood Seminar Series Dr Marek Tesar and Maria Cooper.
