This early childhood education and care (ECEC) project is aiming

  • to provide European ECEC private and public services with adequate tools for self and external evaluation of quality, with the direct involvement of providers and relevant stakeholders as quality development partners;
  • to define a set of adequate tools to be put into practice by ECEC service providers in different EU countries in order to assess quality delivery of service;
  • to gather a set of indicators in order to assess quality in 5 areas (access, workforce, curriculum, evaluation/monitoring, governance/funding) also with a focus on digital competences;
  • to develop a culture of quality at ECEC service providers level, mainly through  a bottom-up approach which directly involves providers and relevant stakeholders in self and external evaluation.

This 28-month-long project started in September 2016 and co-financed in the framework of Erasmus+
