Explore our research on early childhood education and care

Researchers at the University of Stavanger cooperate closely to make Norwegian ECEC institutions even better.

Early childhood education and care is one of the primary areas of research at the University of Stavanger. The University’s research environments cooperate closely on a number of large projects, on several areas within early childhood education and care.

Our research is strongly founded on the Norwegian ECEC model, and we cooperate closely with the ECEC area, which make our research relevant for the development of Norwegian ECEC institutions.

Our research takes place at – and across – the National Centre for Reading Education and Research, the Norwegian Centre for Learning Environment and Behavioural Research in Education and the Department of Early Childhood Education, and a number of Norwegian and international institutions.
