Multilingual early childhood education and care for young refugee children
This is the Toolbox of the Erasmus+ project Multilingual early childhood education and care for young refugee children. In this project (2016-2019) we made an inventory of the existing services, activities and programmes for young children from refugee and asylum-seeking families in the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway and the United Kingdom.
The project has three intellectual outputs (IO), presented here in the Toolbox:
For each country an overview of the state of the art of services for young refugee children.
A list of quality indicators that specify the characteristics of high-quality approaches, programmes and services for this particular target group.
A training package in the form of scenario’s involving refugee children in preschool centres. These are followed by the actual reactions of the teachers/childcare professionals/volunteers. Each scenario is accompanied by a number of reflective questions for professionals (such as: 'what is according to you the issue here?' and 'what would you do in such a situation?').
