While the world is settling down after the tremors of the pandemic, the magnitude of impact on the educational sector has been transformational. Work from home wasn’t unheard of, but online teaching for all kids around the globe has been a revolutionary concept. This new era comes with its own set of challenges for the kids, parents, and teachers. The indelible impression that has been cast by the year 2020 on the psychology of every child, is the element that needs to be dealt with utmost care and sensitivity. With this issue as the focal point, Kidskintha brings to you the World Early Year Summit 2021.
What is the World Early Years Summit?
It is an online event designed to connect the parent and teacher communities for relevant learning around early childhood and elementary education. The Summit is in collaboration with The Early Childhood Association of India, and will be live on March 23 and March 24. The event will feature 30+ panelists who are geniuses in their own fields. Topics of discussion will cover the vast spectrum of early childhood education, such as digital learning, cognitive development, music, drama, parenting, pediatrics, pedagogy, social-emotional learning (SEL), mindfulness, leadership, technology, and many many more.
More than 23,000 participants from around the world have attended Kidskintha’s previous two virtual summits, and through a partnership with India’s Early Years Association ―WEYS 2021 will be distributed to more than 18,000 schools.
Who should attend The World Early Years Summit 2021?

The situation that we facing today is truly unique and this forum will bring us together as a whole community and enable us to tap into our skillsets and extract the best possible solution to meet the changing demands of online education. The need of the hour is the seamless transition into the classroom for the kids as well as the teacher.
Participants in the Summit will gain many practical skills to help in their role as a teacher or parent. From a core understanding of neurodevelopment to foundational knowledge about social-emotional learning, or strategies to use technology to scale learning, there is a wide range of subject matter covered by the expert presenters.
What is the objective of the World Early Years Summit 2021?
The aim is to help educators and parents make connections, build meaningful relationships, and gain confidence in their ability to create a better future for kids.
