Summary One view of early childhood education concerns the preparation of young children for their future lives. It is arguedin this paper that issues of preparing young children for future should be addressed in terms of living in the contextof increasing globalization. The paper is based on the academic experiences of young children in China, Americaand New Zealand. The idea is to identify congruence and differences in academic experiences of young children inthese countries and set them in the context of globalization. Drawing on the perspective of transworld experience inglobalization, the paper places diverse learning experiences of young children in an interconnected world.Contemporary early childhood education needs to change in ways that capture contemporary realties.The papertakes the view that a more globally interconnected approach to learning of young children is a contemporary realityin early childhood education. This has implications for attempts to bring out into the open diverse ways ofchildren’s learning and development. These attempts constitute an essential basis on which to provoke thinkingabout the significance of shifting early childhood education from a local orientation to a more encompassing viewof global practice.
