Childhood Education

Founded in 1924, Childhood Education is an academic journal owned and published by the Association for Childhood Education International, a professional association of educators and parents whose goal is to foster the development of sound educational practices for children from infancy through early adolescence. The journal is published six times per year. Its editorial offices are located in Olney, Md. Childhood Education has 12,000 member and institutional subscribers located in over 53 different countries. Membership consists of classroom teachers, school administrators, educational consultants, teachers-in-training, childcare workers, librarians, parents and caregivers. Articles provide information on topics related to innovative classroom practices, child development, family dynamics, international issues and original research. The journal also conducts product reviews of children's books, videos, software and teaching materials.Originally established in 1892, the Association for Childhood Education International is one of the country's longest-standing professional education associations. In 1946, the Association added the term “International” to its name as a means to demonstrate the organization's concern for and commitment to the education of children in affected war zones. In 1949, the Association became a forerunner of advocacy for civil rights when it denied requests from three states that it maintain separate memberships for blacks and whites. The following year, in 1950, the Association issued its Guide for Groups Wishing to Extend Invitations to ACEI. These guidelines provided stipulations that all Association invitations include the assurance that black members would receive equal access to hotel accommodations, restaurants and public transportation. In 2008, Childhood Education was honored when two of its articles, "The Changing Culture of Childhood: A Perfect Storm" and "Beyond Benchmarks and Scores: Reasserting the Role of Motivation and Interest in Children's Academic Achievement," were finalists for the EdPressDistinguished Achievement Awards. The Editor of Childhood Education is Anne Watson Bauer and Bruce Herzig is Assistant Editor.
