Report: Refugee Access to Early Childhood Education and Care in the UK

last modified Apr 03, 2019 11:32 AM

This report written by Monica Poulter (Teacher Development Manager at Cambridge Assessment English), Dr Brechtje Post and Prof. Ianthi Maria Tsimpli, forms part of an Erasmus project involving educationalists in the Netherlands, UK, Belgium and Norway. The overall objective of the project is to enhance the quality of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) for preschool refugee children by providing tools to educators, child-care professionals and policy makers.

The project culminates in a Conference in Leiden on 17 June which aims to investigate ways in which the examples of best practice and the resources identified in the project can be used for the professional development of ECEC providers. It is also hoped that increased awareness of the barriers which may prevent refugee parents from accessing free provision in the UK will encourage local authorities, with government support, to facilitate access.

Once you have read the report, please take a moment to complete this short questionnaire. This is an opportunity for you to feedback on the report, and to share any policies or examples of good practice you have adopted or are considering adopting having read the report.
