This curriculum guide was conceived keeping in mind the diverse educational settings of early childhood education in the United States. It is especially targeted for preschool classrooms of children aged two and a half to four years old. However, it can be modified for use in early elementary school where teachers hope to incorporate peace education into their classrooms. Early childhood educators are the primary audience for this guidebook, but any educator, parent, or caregiver can benefit from the concepts of peace education.

This curriculum guide should stem from a critical engagement between teachers and the communities within which they work, as well as a reflection between the needs of the students and the pedagogical practices of the educator. In providing a handbook on the workings of peace education in early childhood education, it should be considered as a dynamic tool, in which educators can reflect on their particular educational environment and transform it to meet the needs of the children and communities with which they work.
