This post is also available in: Spanish
The sixth recommendation of the Declaration of the Regional Forum: Towards Quality Early Childhood Education, highlights the importance of developing a competence framework for those working on the subject, promoting a system of training—both initial and continuous—and certification of competencies that strengthen early childhood care in the Latin America and the Caribbean.
Organized by the Inter-American Dialogue with the support of the LEGO Foundation and the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI), this event will present a study on the competency frameworks for early childhood teachers in five countries of the region and will include a panel discussion of regional experts regarding the applicability of these frameworks in different countries in the region.

We invite participants to send questions through the Q&A function on Zoom.
This event will be held in Spanish.
