The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) has teamed up with Cambridge University, UK, to present WISE@Doha on Early Childhood Education. The gathering will take place Sunday, 9th October at 8.30am at the HBKU Student Center, Ballroom 3, in Education City.

The WISE@Doha event will include local WISE partners from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, Qatar Academy, and Qatar University’s Early Childhood Center, as well as Cambridge University.

The event is an opportunity for participants to reflect on the key priorities in this crucial field. It takes place following the publication of the comprehensive WISE Research Report: ‘Quality in Early Childhood Education: an International Review and Guide for Policy Makers’ last year.

Prof David Whitebread, Cambridge University, the chief author of the report and a distinguished authority in the field, will address the gathering and lead a panel discussion, followed by a “World Café” style workshop. The session will allow participants to interact informally, share unique experiences, and explore ways to support Early Childhood Education at all levels in Qatar.

The event is expected to generate substantive, stimulating discussion that will raise awareness of the key role quality ECE plays in children’s success, both in their later education and in their working lives – and as happy, thriving individuals.

WISE, an initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), is committed to promoting and supporting ECE among educators and policymakers with the ultimate goal of building a more cohesive and secure society.
