From 26 until 28 February 2018 the VALUE partners met in the beautiful Ismaili Centre in Lisbon. Training and research centres from Portugal, Denmark, Slovenia and Belgium will focus during 3 years on the collaboration between all ECEC practitioners (core and assisting practitioners) involved in the care and learning process of young children. A central question is how to value the divers background and experience of ECEC practitioners in a context of diversity.
Next to discussions on the situation of ECEC (Early Childhood Education and Care) and ECEC assistants in each country and the working plan, we’ve visited the Centro Infantil Olivais Sul (childcare centre and pre-primary school). We’ve been inspired by the participatory approach of the children and the team!
