An Leanbh Óg: The OMEP Ireland Journal of Early Childhood Studies

 

An Leanbh Óg (The Young Child) is a peer-reviewed journal, published annually.

 

We are delighted to introduce Volume 11 of An Leanbh Óg, the OMEP Ireland Journal of Early Childhood Studies. This is a very special international issue, which had its origins in a conference held in Malta in November 2016, to mark the end of the EU funded programmes that led to the European Master in Early Childhood Education (EMEC) and its successor, the International Master in Early Childhood Education (IMEC).

 

Our guest editors for this special issue are Valerie Sollars of the University of Malta, Máire Mhic Mhathuna of the Dublin Institute of Technology, Jan Erik Johannson of Oslo & Akershus College of Applied Sciences, Norway, and Maelis Karlsson Lohmander of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
