Nobody imagined that childhood educators would have to leave their kindergartens and daycare centers to perform their demanding and complex profession from home, without any in-person interaction with children and their families. 

Nobody prepared educators for this change, yet they have to face it with professionalism. In this uncharted territory of early childhood service provision at distance, educators must be supported and the ways of doing so are changing. An ISSA webinar on April 27th (14.00 CET) will share how organizations in three countries are continuing to provide professional support for educators.
