ECWI COVID-19 Position Statement

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on young children and their families around the world and will have lasting consequences for their health, nutrition, safety, and learning opportunities.

Mitigating the risks of the pandemic and promoting essential nurturing care to these young children both today and after the crisis can only be achieved with attention to the early childhood workforce – the range of individuals across paid and unpaid roles who provide services to young children and their caregivers across the health, nutrition, education, and social and child protection sectors.

Read our COVID-19 Position Statement, which outlines priority actions to protect, support and strengthen the early childhood workforce.
