IAS: Increasing Accessibility of Integrated ECEC Services

Kind en Gezin, VBJK en EXPOO  submitted an apllication for Erasmus+ on the topic of increasing accessibility of integrated ECEC-services to support all families with young children.
The admission is approved. The international platform startet at the end of 2018 with a kick-off in Brussels.

Partners of the platform are VBJK, Kind en Gezin, EXPOO (Flanders), THL (Finland), University of Tromso (Norway), University Mikolaya Kopernika (Poland), MALA ULICA (Slovenia).

The aim of IAS is to exchange ideas and inspiring practices between policy, practice and research on improving accessibility of integrated services for these (vulnerable) families with young children. The exchange of ideas and inspiring practices happens on different levels:

  • Relation professional/services – families
  • Role Policy Makers

We want to elaborate these two levels on local, national and European level.
To achieve these two main goals, we want to visit one or more integrated ECEC-services in the country of each partner organisation.


International meetings

In each country a 3 day meeting (called the IAS-meeting) is organized, combining study visits to inspiring practices, with discussion and working tables
