The Early Years Research Centre is sited in the Wilf Malcolm Institute for 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 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.
