The Science of Early Child Development (SECD) project originated in the early 2000s as a means of effectively mobilizing the rapidly emerging science of early brain development into post-secondary educational programs, to ensure students had access to new research and the opportunity to explore its application to their field of study. With the support of many funders and collaborators, the SECD project grew to include a variety of resources and courses.
A small but committed team at Red River College Polytechnic (RRC Polytech) has the privilege of maintaining, enhancing and updating SECD material to ensure the content and delivery are current, relevant and “alive.” Red River College Polytechnic wishes to acknowledge all of those who have contributed to the development of SECD, with special acknowledgement to the original design and development team and partner organizations, who set the foundation upon which others could build.
