About PECE

The Positive Early Childhood Education Program (PECE) is an initiative of the Parenting and Family Support Centre at the University of Queensland, also the home of the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program®. Like Triple P, PECE is available through Triple P International.

Triple P International is the publishing and implementation organization created to disseminate Triple P, one of the world's most effective evidence-based parenting and family support programs, now used in more than 27 countries. These programs are backed by more than four decades of ongoing research, conducted by academic institutions in the U.S., the U.K., Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Iran, China, Japan, Turkey, New Zealand and Australia.

Triple P International (TPI) is a certified B Corp™. TPI has passed the rigorous assessment of non-profit organization B Lab®, (meeting their 'highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability', and including the stated aim of using 'the power of business to solve social and environmental problems').

At Triple P International and our subsidiaries around the world, we hope to create global social change by putting evidence-based programs in the hands of every parent and educator. We want to help them build stronger, healthy family relationships within safe and prosperous societies; to improve lives and communities.

PECE – Development and Research Information

PECE is a parallel program to the Triple P–Positive Parenting Program ('Triple P'). PECE has 22 core strategies, many of which overlap with other Triple P interventions. PECE has been developed by Triple P’s Professor Matt Sanders and a team of University of Queensland colleagues (Associate Professor Karen Turner, Dr Cassandra Dittman, and U.S.-based researcher Dr Julie Rusby). Canadian early childhood education researcher Dr Shawna Lee has spent six years conducting evaluation trials, which continue to report positive outcomes (some are ongoing). The Triple P–Positive Parenting Program is owned by the University of Queensland. The university through its main technology transfer company, UniQuest Pty Ltd, has licensed Triple P International Pty Ltd to publish and disseminate the program worldwide. Royalties stemming from published Triple P resources are distributed to the Parenting and Family Support Centre; School of Psychology; Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences; and contributory authors. No author has any share or ownership in Triple P International Pty Ltd.
