Save the date! 23 - 24 May 2019


The six participating cities in project ERASMUS+ 'Social Inclusion, Education and Urban Policy for Young Children'- Berlin, Copenhagen, Ghent, Ljubljana, Amsterdam and Rotterdam - are all facing a growth of the diversity of the population and the need for an inclusive policy for early childhood education and care. During the three-year period of the project eleven international partners have been working together to develop inspiring and breakthrough ideas about social inclusion, intercultural competences and – from an urban perspective – to find ways to combat discrimination and segregation within the Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) work field.

Two-day international closing conference and field visits; a unique programme

This conference offers and facilitates a unique programme for child care experts and practicioners, participants in the ECEC work field, policy makers and researchers.
At the conference the results of the Erasmus+ project Social Inclusion, Education and Urban Policy for Young Children will be presented and discussed; international keynote speakers will reflect on social inclusion with regard to practice, policy and organisation; experts on inclusion of young children will give inspiring presentations and workshops.
A special part of this conference will be devoted to field visits to child care centers in Amsterdam which will offer participants a better understanding of and a closer look into the Dutch child care system.

The official programme of the conference will be announced in December on our conference website (url will follow later). More information about the Erasmus+ project Social Inclusion, Education and Urban Policy for Young Children can be found on the website ‘Cities Including Children’.
