Early childhood education and care is a central area of research at the University of Stavanger (UiS). Our research environments cooperate closely on a number of large projects within a range of topics in this area.
Our research is based upon the values of Norwegian early childhood education. We have close contact with the early education area, and our research has great influence on the development of the Norwegian early education and care sector.
