INTESYS – Together: Supporting vulnerable children through integrated early childhood services
In partnership with Universal Education Foundation (the Netherlands), Compagnia di San Paolo (Italy), Emanuela Zancan Foundation (Italy), Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian (Portugal), Aga Khan Foundation (Portugal), VBJK (Belgium) and Pedagogical Institute (Slovenia), from autumn this year, ISSA will be part of a European consortium to implement a Forward Looking Cooperation Project under the Erasmus+, Key Action 3: Support for policy reform. The project called INTESYS – Together: Supporting vulnerable children through integrated early childhood services will be managed by the King Baudouin Foundation (Belgium). Focusing on promoting ECEC systems that are responsive to and inclusive of vulnerable children and their families, due to better integrated services and a more holistic and child and family-centred approach. The pathways to building a competent inclusive ECEC system will be explored by engaging with two levels of the system – workforce preparation and professional development, and governance – through innovative tools and processes.
