InTrans webinar: Why challenge the split early childhood education and care systems?

During the first webinar in this two part series, the challenges that persist in split ECEC systems in many European countries — where childcare for children up to three years of age is organized distinctly from preschool for children up to compulsory school age — will be shared. Findings from research carried out in Belgium, France, Italy, and the Netherlands, on the experiences of children, parents, and professionals, as well as policy makers, will focus on the inequalities that are (re)produced by the split system and how this may be related (and questioned) by the implementation of the European Child Guarantee Council Recommendation.

Topics and speakers:

  • Framing the theme of the webinar – Michel Vandenbroeck, Belgium
  • Policy perspectives: moving from a split to an integrated ECEC system in Italy - Arianna Lazzari & Lucia Balduzzi, Italy
  • Predictors of child development in split systems in The Netherlands - Ruben Fukkink, the Netherlands
  • Transition to kindergarten in France, experiences of socialization in split systems and a special focus on children in poverty - Pascale Garnier & Sylvie Rayna, France
  • Experiences of children and parents with transitions in Belgium - Katrien Van Laere & Marie Housen, Belgium

Host: Zorica Trikic, International Step by Step Association, the Netherlands

Time: 15:30 - 17:30 CET
