Rights-based Approaches

ARNEC is right-based. We uphold the protection of children's rights in accordance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.


We respect diversity in our membership and in the ECD community. We uphold non-discrimination and make our knowledge and information available to our members.


We are inclusive and we encourage our members to actively participate in our activities as we highly value their inputs. We ensure that our work responds to the needs of our members and to the whole ECD community in the region.


We hold ourselves responsible to our members, partners, donors and stakeholders. We ensure clarity, transparency and openness in our relationships and in our decision-making processes.


We are a group of equal partners who consult and share information, ideas, and good practices with each other. We strive to build strong partnerships with people and institutions who share our vision so that together we can ensure all children have quality ECD experiences.
