OMEP is an international NGO with Consultative Status at the United Nations and UNESCO. It was founded in 1948 to defend and promote the well-being and education of children from birth to eight. It welcomes as members everyone with an interest in the education and well-being of children and their families.
Members include practitioners, academics, students, teachers, policy makers, local authority staff, and professionals from a range of disciplines and we value the experience of those who are now retired. Parents and volunteers are particularly welcome.
