The Early Years Research Centre in the Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research includes a group of scholars who have built a national and international reputation in the following three areas of research in the early years: pedagogy, policy and community connections. These areas form the three themes of the Centre’s research programme. The Centre has a social justice agenda; it aims to make a difference for young children, early years teachers, families and whānau in Aotearoa New Zealand, undertaking robust research that influences policy and informs scholars worldwide. The Early Years Research Centre provides a coordinating and connecting function, creating a platform for ongoing and future research.
