We have determined the top early childhood education blogs, preschool blogs and childcare blogs for 2017 based on popularity and influence in the ECE community. We hope the list will help you to discover some great new resources and revisit old favorites!
We are continuing our annual tradition of evaluating the top 25 early childhood education blogs. It’s been an amazing process to discover all the quality content that has been created — particularly the many practical ideas that can be implemented in any program right now.
While we keep to the top 25 early childhood education blogs, there’s a lot of content to discover out there! With the top 25, we can be sure that there is great and relevant content because it has been validated by the number of people that have visited and referenced the site.
As with last year, our major requirement is that the blog’s primary focus is on early childhood education (including Kindergarten). We focused on three criteria for our ranking.
- Popularity: measured by number of site visits
- Authority: measured by number of references linking to the blog
- Recent growth: measured by the growth in number of visitors and number of references
Without further ado, here are the Top 25 Early Childhood Education Blogs to read for 2017:
