This thematic issue of JCES seeks to explore policies and practices addressing alternative conceptualizations of childhood and issues of availability, accessibility, affordability of early childhood services and teacher labor regimes across different geographies in order to understand the reciprocal relationship between early childhood education and contemporary relations of power and inequality. We invite papers that report empirical studies, reviews, policy analyses, theoretical trends related to policies and practices of early childhood education across different geographies. Papers can be comparative across time and space or present research findings and theorizations of specific locations.
