ByDoris Pronin Fromberg

The Knowledge Base of Early Childhood Teacher Education (ECTE) in relation to Early Childhood Education (ECE) is value-laden within any particular socio-cultural, economic, historical, and political context. The editorial perspective of this paper is nurtured within the currently available socio-cultural, historical, political, and research context. Therefore, the complex non-linear (threedimensional) nature of learning, as contrasted with a minimalist (two-dimensional) perspective, is central to the editorial perspective of this paper.
