VBJK is partner in INTESYS, an Erasmus+ project on integrated services in ECEC. The project wants to promote ECEC systems which are better responding to the needs of vulnerable families by working in a more integrated way and closing the gaps between different services (childcare, preschool, family support ...). Through a literature review and pilots in four countries (Italy, Slovenia, Portugal and Belgium) the project will get a better view on how integrated work and offering warm transitions benefits the holistic development of children. More info will follow shortly in a newsletter and website.

The nursery will receive a cash award of €25,000, of which some is to be used to share their vision and good practices with colleagues in other European countries. Read more
