ECEC Newsletters

While the practice and quality of early childhood education and care (ECEC) have drawn increasing attention from the world community, Japan's ECEC are also undergoing various reforms. Child Research Net (CRN) promotes ECEC studies. In our ECEC Newsletters, we introduce parts of the research results. Please download them and take a look!


Published annually or semi-annually, the CRN Newsletter is an activity report providing a quick view of recent events and projects.
