Ukraine Response: ISSA’s 5 main streams of work  

Strengthen the capacity of practitioners to provide psycho-social support

Partner with ISSA’s Members and other relevant actors


Empower members to build capacity at municipality level and support a strategic response on short and medium term

Use the network’s expertise with the Primokiz approach and INTESYS

Use existing expertise of ISSA members in setting-up non-formal bridging services (e.g., Playgroups, Primo-Hubs, TOY Libraries)

Support gradual integration of children in formal education services of host countries


Support efforts of reconstruction in Ukraine

Once the war is over, support ISSA’s members and their partners in Ukraine to rebuild early years services 


Ensure that inclusion, respect for diversity, and equity are key ingredients of quality early childhood policies and practices

Support ISSA members to work at scale towards improving programs, practices, and policies across Europe


Facilitate a learning community across countries

We will leverage all ISSA’s network mechanisms for the children affected by the war in Ukraine
