InTrans Infographics - status of early childhood care and education systems in seven EU countries

Tags: ECEC, education

The ultimate goal of the InTrans project is to ensure that all children and families — especially the most vulnerable — benefit from warm and inclusive transitional practice in ECEC and school.  

To achieve this goal, the project is supporting professionals through action at the policy advocacy and training levels.  

At the level of policy and governance, InTrans has been facilitating activities to create awareness, knowledge development, and exchange for national and international policymakers in order to help them develop a shared vision on warm and inclusive transitions and corresponding policy measures.  

More concretely, the project has conducted policy analysis research in each of the four countries involved (Belgium, Finland, Italy and Slovenia). Based on the resulting baseline policy country reports, these infographics have been created to provide an overview of the present state of early childhood care and education systems in the countries (including Denmark). 

For an overview of the challenges and opportunities in the field of transitions across the four countries, read the comparison analysis executive summary report.
