Senior Research Associate of the University College London's Institute of Education and the research co-ordinator of the Effective Pre-School, Primary and Secondary Education (EPPSE) project will be one of the key speakers at the 10th International Conference "Early Childhood Care and Education" (ECCE 2020).
Brenda Taggart and her colleague from Oxford University professor Katie Silva were the leaders of the 17-year (EPPSE 1997-2014) longitudinal study “Effective Preschool, Primary and Secondary Education” (EPPSE). The key issue in the study was the effect of the quality of preschool education on subsequent education in primary and secondary schools, as well as the socialization and sustainable mental development of children and teenagers. The data obtained in the study has a significant impact on the development of preschool education in the UK and all over the world.
At the 10th International Conference “Early Childhood Care and Education” (ECCE 2020), Brenda Taggart will talk in detail about the results of EPPSE and the scales developed in the UK to determine how the educational environment supports the development of children's thinking.
