My research investigates how the interaction between schools and communities impact early childhood care and education. I apply psychological research approaches to examine how communities promote inclusion and participation, particularly with educational resources. I am currently conducting research with pre-school and school programs in Canada, Switzerland, and Madagascar. From this research with multi-cultural urban cities and rural mono-cultural settings I am working with new models to support the relationship between schools and communities. This work will help to promote positive child development.
