Sharing Web Resources

Provide the name and link for the international website you selected, and a brief description of the organization’s focus
I chose the World Organization for Early Childhood Education (OMEP). The organization is composed of professions and lay men, dedicated to improving lives of young children.
Identify one current issue/trend from the newsletter and/or from the website that caught your attention
In the February 2011 newsletter, I was surprised to see that OMEP and NAEYC joint forces to organize an event on behalf of children.  Issues surrounding the well-being of young children have and will always be an issue of concern if we continue to ignore the gaps in modern early childhood development.  OMEP aims to address the deficits and defend the rights of children everywhere.

Share if there was anything else you learned from studying these resources related to the topic of this week
I continue to learn about the different organizations that want what is best for our young children.  It always amazes that people can be so dedicated to a cause and put their whole selves into the struggle for equality. 


  1. Kali,

    I joined the NAEYC as a result of our first course, so I ws interested to read your post about them joining forces with the OMEP to organize events on behalf of children. I am going to check out the OMEP. Thanks for the info.

  2. Carole,

    No problem carole. It was interesting to me as well. When I read the newsletter, I didn't expect to see NAEYC.
