¨The best way to predict the future is to create it.¨ Peter Drucker 1. Strengthening interdisciplinary research in the area of the childhood with an objective to promote the practice of early and preschool education in the conditions of contemporary institutional childhood. We are focused on questioning contemporary research approaches appropriate to these educational contexts, which are directed towards the educational paradigm of ¨learning through research¨ and with the aim of querying and coordinating knowledge and developing new ideas based on the theoretical demands of study programmes with the achievements of educational practice. One of the crucial questions that arises is - which abilities should a child of the 21st century possess? Accordingly, we also reflect upon the ways of structuring (physically, organisationally) institutions of early and primary education in a manner that is truly in accordance with the child' s nature and thus develops readiness for the times to come, fostering traits such as an entrepreneureal spirit, flexibility, a willingness to adapt to newly arising situations and a continual readiness for learning. 2. Creating a support point for the further development of the professional identity of experts and scientists in the area of early and preschool education. The role of continuous professional development and lifelong learning is a key prerequisite for the development and consolidation of professional identity. Having this aim in mind, the Centre acts as a training area for the development of a ¨community for theoretical and practical work¨ and provides practitioners with permanent access to the academic community through the organisation of research seminars and periodical ¨partnership evenings¨ with guest lecturers and semi-annual conferences dedicated to general work improvement.
