12 & 13 November 2018  On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, Bureau Kwaliteit Kindervang organizes a unique two-day conference in the city of Berlin. During this congress, well-known international speakers will discuss what Early Years Education can do to improve equity opportunities for all children. 

Throughout Europe, policies have been implemented to reduce inequality. But as it turns out, such policies aren't always a quarantee for success. We've shared good practices, but thorough evidence is still lacking. How can we secure an improved outcome for Early Childhood Education and Care and broaden access for vulnerable children and their families?
What else does the conference offer?

  • The program provides an opportunity for European Early Years Education professionals to share and discuss challenges and existing equity policies. 
  • We aim to exchange knowledge and inspire new initiatives and joint programs.
  • An atmosphere for strategic thinking and problem solving.
  • A pleasant venue in a great city.
