28 June 11am Paris/ 10am London

Children’s learning, development and well-being are directly influenced by their daily interactions with other children, adults, their families and the environment. This interactive process is known as “process quality”, and leads to a key question: Which policies set the best conditions for children to experience high-quality interactions in early childhood education and care (ECEC) settings?

Join us as we present findings from the latest edition of the OECD Starting Strong project. Co-hosted by the Bernard van Leer Foundation and ISSA, this launch webinar will look at five main policy levers and their effect on process quality, focusing particularly on curriculum and pedagogy, and workforce development.

Speakers include:

Andreas Schleicher, OECD Director for Education and Skills
Henriette Heimgaertner, Co-founder & former Managing Director of the Berlin Early Childhood Institute for Quality Development
Prof. Dr. Michel Vandenbroeck, Head of the Department of Social Work and Social Pedagogy, Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, Ghent University

Moderator:

Dr. Mihaela Ionescu, Program Director at ISSA – the International Step by Step Association
