Our Mission

The International Step by Step Association (ISSA) is a network that connects professionals and organizations working in the field of early childhood development. ISSA’s community today stretches across the globe with 90 member organizations in 42 countries, primarily in Europe and Central Asia. ISSA’s mission is to ensure equal access to quality care and education for all young children from birth to 10 years old. To achieve this mission, ISSA promotes high quality and professionalism in early childhood services for young children, by engaging with the ECD field, developing resources and building capacity among its membership and beyond. Issues related to quality, equity, parenting, the workforce and inter-sectoral approaches in early years services are at the core of ISSA’s work. ISSA also brings to this partnership its long-term experience of serving as a catalyst, convener and facilitator of a learning community for ECD in Europe, Central Asia, and beyond.
