About Project

Education is one of the most perspective fields of life. The contemporary educational trends, as a response to the larger socio-economic changes and the fast technological development, provide the opportunity for changes in the educational practices of the kindergarten pre-school classroom as the core of the organized learning at the earliest age. The purpose of these changes is to establish a process of continuous advancement to the quality of pre-school education. Pre-school education staff plays an important part in raising healthy generations.

CHILD recognizes that excellence in preschool education requires the corresponding training for gaining skills and practical resources to apply them, and as such its main objective is to provide the above to pre-school educators. The aim is to train pre-school staff in open education, social engagement, professional development, ethics, and impact. In regards to the sectoral priority of “Developing high-quality early childhood education and care systems”, the primary aim of CHILD is to develop and reinforce a network of excellence in pre-school education which will increase the institutional capacity for a professional, high-quality, effective and needs based child care service to operate at transnational level and foster regional integration and cooperation.

The fast technological development in our era provides the opportunity for changes in educational practices and advancement in preschool education quality. Now, the resources used are from popular video and content-sharing platforms, not specialized in preschool education.
