In 1959, the United Nations proposed a Declaration of the Rights of the Child launching a campaign that in 1989 saw the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopt the Convention of the Rights of the Child. This Convention clearly delineates non–negotiable principles of human rights, freedoms and entitlements that apply to children worldwide regardless of race, colour, gender, language, religion, opinions, origins, wealth, birth status or ability. As we approach the 60th anniversary in 2019, of the inception of universal human rights for children, we have an opportunity to examine how our own professional practice in Early Learning and Early Childhood Development Services is evolving to ensure that these rights are promoted for the children and families that we serve.
