COFACE and Eurofound are organising the roundtable “Two-generation Early Childhood Education and Care programmes” on September 23rd (from 9:00 to 13:00) in Brussels. The aim of this roundtable is to highlight two-generation programmes that consider early childhood education centres as platforms for attracting parents into education and training.
Why are two-generation programmes relevant?
Two-generation programmes focus on policies, services and practices that create opportunities for and address the needs of both vulnerable parents and children together. For children, two-generation programmes can include health and education services, such as early childhood education, and services. For parents, it can be parenting, language courses, educational and training programmes etc.
The objective of a two-generation programme is to build human and social capital across generations by combining education or job training for adults with early childhood education for their children.
The roundtable will include:
1. ECEC in the current European policy context.
2. Conceptualising two-generation programmes.
3. Governance and funding, the way forward.
The event will end with a networking lunch at 13:00h.
Participation in the seminar costs 10 EUR.
