Sharing the science of early childhood development through an online learning tool

by CIFAR Oct 1 / 14

The Science of Early Child Development (SECD) is an online resource for child development knowledge users that was started collaboratively between the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Department at Red River College and CIFAR.

CIFAR fellows provided key research insights and video interviews to populate the SECD, which formally launched in 2005.
