Children’s rights: Every day and everywhere – Book 1


By Dr Anne Kennedy

Children’s rights: Every day and everywhere is focused on the concept of children’s rights and how these rights are promoted and protected, with a particular focus on the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006). As parents/carers and educators, becoming more familiar with these UN Conventions is a suitable beginning for increasing understanding about the nature of children’s rights and their practical implications.

About the Everyday Learning Series:

Early Childhood Australia’s Everyday Learning Series acknowledges that the most important early learning happens through day-to-day life experiences and provides ideas and strategies on ways educators and families can make the most of these experiences to support children’s development. By ‘making the ordinary, extraordinary’, the Everyday Learning Series is an invaluable resource for educators, students of early education, beginning practitioners, and families by assisting them in maximising young children’s play, exploration and discovery, and development within learning environments.
