About ECRC

The Early Childhood Resource Centre (ECRC) was founded to address the urgent need to create an advanced platform for early childhood care, and development in the State of Palestine (SoP). Its headquarters is in Ramallah with two main outreach branches in Nablus and Hebron districts. Since its inception, ECRC has been dedicated to the development and promotion of Early Childhood Development (ECD) in the State of Palestine (SoP), promoting the belief that investment in ECD contributes to the socio-economic development of the Palestinian Community.
Since its establishment, ECRC has initiated various Programs and projects to improve the education and well-being of Palestinian children. It has developed a comprehensive educational framework for ECD, created networks and contributed to many existing coalitions through debates, cooperation, coordination, and dialogues. ECRC has developed mechanisms to work in full partnership with grassroots organizations, empowering the women teachers, and working to integrate children with special needs into pre-schools. Parents are considered a target group within each goal.
