PINN - Report of 4th Learning Exchange Visit

The fourth and final International Learning Exchange Visit of the crossnational EU PINN Project, took place virtually on 2, 3 and 4 November 2020. Our goal for this learning exchange visit was to get a better understanding of the role maternity services and parenting support play in prevention and early intervention. The participants and panelists also shared experiences about how COVID-19 is affecting maternity, ECEC, community development and parenting support services and the adaptations that are being made to keep services open for young children’s and their parents’ wellbeing.

The Proactive International Network of Newborn and Young Children (PINN) aims to share best practice in the areas of prevention and early intervention in disadvantaged populations, evidence informed practice, practitioner training in prevention and early intervention approaches, and the importance of early childhood care and education (ECEC) as a preventative tool. The objective of this learning exchange is to allow partner organisations to develop and reinforce networks, increase their capacity to work at a transnational level, share and confront ideas, practices and methods in ECEC and prevention and early intervention.
