Hillel Goelman’s ECED research investigates the following:
- Quality in ECED settings. How do we define “quality”? What are the short and long-term effects of “quality” ECE settings on kids and their families? This also includes work on child care and mental health. How does quality moderate the effects of maternal depression on their preschool age children?
- Studies of the effects of Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs).
- Public policy and ECE. How are public policies created and implemented? How do cross-provincial and cross-national policies impact on children and families?
- History of childhood. The 16th century was a time of great progress in ECED. New curricula were created, new kinds of learning materials were created, new perceptions and understandings of the meaning of childhood were created. Much of this grew out of the work of Johan Comenius in Czechoslovakia.
