Science of Early Child Development
The Science of Early Child Development (SECD) is a knowledge translation and mobilization initiative developed at Red River College (RRC) in Canada, designed to make current research accessible to anyone interested in the impact of early experience on lifelong health and well-being. Since 2009, the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) has been a key partner in expanding SECD globally by tailoring SECD educational resources for majority world contexts and developing flexible materials to meet the needs of different audiences – from parents and caregivers to graduate students, policy-makers and leaders. All SECD resources are media-rich, interactive and highlight research and programs from around the world.
The SECD resources developed in partnership between AKDN and RRC include:
Online resources, course-ready
Offline resources used in face-to-face settings such as classrooms, meetings and workshops
- SECD Seminar Series
- SECD Resource Kit
