SSRRE 2025-2026: NYHQ, Associate Director, Early Childhood Development, D-1, NYHQ United States
There has been important progress for young children in recent decades. However, around the world, millions of children are not receiving adequate nutrition, stimulation and responsive care, are missing out on healthcare and learning opportunities, and are exposed to unhealthy environments, violence and stress. The failure to give children the best start in life perpetuates cycles of poverty and disadvantage that can span generations, undermining the strength, stability and prosperity of nations. The 2023 UNICEF Vision for Early Childhood Development provides a framework for UNICEF’s organization-wide support to early childhood development, focusing on children from birth to the age of school entry. It also acknowledges the centrality of adequate policies, programmes and practices in protecting and fulfilling the survival, growth and development rights of all children in early life, including in fragile and humanitarian settings.   At global, regional and country levels, UNICEF is leading on this agenda, in active partnerships to leverage financing, scale up programmes, develop and implement multi-sectoral policies and strategies, and promote awareness on the importance of early years. A global call for action has been made to boost national investments and engage communities and families in the demand for integrated packages of interventions to ensure a fair start to all young children. There has been a steady increase in the inclusion of early stimulation, responsive care, early learning and pre-primary programmes and policies around the world that needs to be accelerated.  The Associate Director, Early Childhood Development (D1) reports to the Director, Child Nutrition and Development (D2) and provides global thought leadership, strategic vision and technical guidance to UNICEF’s programming for early childhood development, in support of UNICEF’s SDG commitments.
