The Early Childhood Research Group (ECRG) supports, connects and informs the early childhood research community by building on experiences from policy, practice and research, by sharing knowledge, identifying opportunities and disseminating learning to an interested and wide-ranging audience. The Group consists of members of the Children’s Research Network who have an interest in research into early childhood.

The group is open to all members of the Children’s Research Network who want to join.
