Collaborative Impact

With over 25 years of expertise in early childhood development, ISSA members collaborate together, as well as with partners and funders, to implement comprehensive initiatives that engage varied stakeholders—practitioners, researchers, academics, local governments, service providers, and more—to foster systemic transformation in early childhood development. These initiatives are designed to build inclusive and integrated systems that enhance the well-being and development of all children. Key components include capacity building, advocacy, and training.

Additionally, beyond the ISSA Secretariat’s role for growing and maintaining the member association, we also advance early childhood development through strategic programmatic initiatives and expert consultancy services to create meaningful, systemic change across Europe and Central Asia.

Large-Scale Initiatives

We regularly engage in partnership initiatives, developing innovative, evidence-based solutions and practices that address the needs of early childhood development. Our collaborative efforts with policymakers, local organizations, international agencies and foundations, academics, and practitioners ensure that our initiatives are well-rounded and impactful. We design, facilitate, and implement interventions that drive meaningful change at national, regional, and global levels, focusing on building comprehensive, inclusive, and integrated systems that promote the well-being and development of all children. Key components of these initiatives include capacity building, advocacy, training, and the development of essential frameworks, guidelines, toolkits, reports, and other resources.
