CRECHE activities unite researchers throughout the world on common issues related to the health, care and education of young children and their families. We strive to make connections among researchers and theorists from diverse schools of thought to address complex issues that directly impact the wellness of children and families living in a global community.
CRECHE researchers share the view that multiple research perspectives are needed to fully explore the diversity in children’s health and educational outcomes. Consolidation of findings from studies of genetics, neurobiology and physiology with those from research on culture, society and language creates understandings of children’s diversity that go beyond those gleaned from any strand of research in isolation.
