The World Forum on Early Care and Education is unlike any other gathering. The program is crafted to build relationships, expand perspectives, and provoke new thinking. World Forum does not bring in celebrity speakers and does not pay presenters. Program participants are delegates who step forward to share their ideas and insights. All delegates are equal – everyone has something to learn and something to share.
