ISSA Conference 2017 will explore the major challenges and opportunities we face today in building competent early childhood systems, through three major themes:
“Quality is not act. It is a habit.” ~Aristotle
ISSA’s Peer Learning Activities (PLAs) offer a unique opportunity for ISSA members to learn from each other experiences, grow their knowledge and strengthen ISSA as a learning community. Each year ISSA members can apply for funding and organize their own PLA to share best practices with their peers in different countries.
The Center for Educational Initiatives Step by Step in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BH), has launched a national Annual teaching award aimed at promoting innovative and high-quality preschool, primary and secondary school teachers, with special focus on practices that support development of critical thinking skills and social responsibility.
During 2015, ISSA undertook a period of strategic planning; a look ahead to the future and how to become a broader network functioning in more countries to deliver high quality early childhood services.
