About us

The Consortium for Research on Early Childhood Development and Education (CORE) was established in October 2020 in the Faculty of Education at The University of Hong Kong. It is an interdisciplinary team with members across the University who are professionally trained in early childhood education, special educational needs, paediatrics, psychology and statistics. Prior to the establishment of CORE, studies have been conducted in the East-Asia and Pacific region, including Cambodia, Fiji, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Timor-Leste, Vietnam, Vanuatu, and in affiliation with organizations such as UNICEF, Asia-Pacific Regional Network for Early Childhood (ARNEC) and World Bank. Our work is highly relevant to government policy makers, early childhood educators as well as local, regional and international non-governmental organisations.
