TEHRAN, Sept. 27 (MNA) -- Iranian Education Minister Hamidreza Hajibabaii has travelled to Russia to attend the first-ever World Conference on Early Childhood Care and Education in Moscow.

The conference is held from September 27-29 by UNESCO with the name of “Building the Wealth of Nations”.

Many officials and delegations from more than one hundred countries and international organizations have attended the conference.

Five commissions are held on the sidelines of the conference and the Iranian education minister will manage one of them with the theme of “training pre-school children in crisis and after that”.

* Take stock of the progress of member states towards achieving the EFA Goal 1;
* Identify binding constraints toward making the intended equitable expansion of access to quality ECCE services;
* Establish, more concretely, benchmarks and targets for the EFA Goal 1 toward 2015 and beyond
* Identify key enablers that should facilitate member states to reach the established targets; and
* Promote global exchange of good practices.
