About ECDAM

The Early Childhood Development Association of Malta (ECDAM) was launched on the 1st of April 2016. The registered voluntary non-profit organisation aims to strengthen the values, knowledge and skills of all those involved in Early Childhood Education and Care through monthly events (October-June). It also provides a voice representing children aged 0-7 years, their families and the Early Childhood Education and Care profession to promote and support high-quality early years provision.
