The Science of Early Child Development (SECD) is a knowledge mobilization initiative designed to make current research accessible to anyone interested in learning more about the profound impact of the early years on lifelong health and well-being.
Beginning as a tool to help share the emerging science about early brain development and its implications for practice across sectors, SECD has grown and developed into a variety of online resources: four Living Textbooks, a Child Development Primer Module (English and French versions) and a Prenatal Development Module. Regularly updated, it brings research and concepts to life with hundreds of readings, videos, links, reflect questions and interactive activities.
