Event: Early childhood education and care in Europe- working with families and the whole community

10 June 2021 – 14.00-16.00, Online

On 10 June, the European Commission will host an online event on early childhood education and care (ECEC) in Europe.


  1. Promote further and in more detail the Toolkit for inclusive ECEC (and support further peer learning); this webinar focuses on working with families and the whole community. It follows a webinar on 27 April focussed on access to ECEC (Early childhood education and care) by all children and families. Another webinar will focus on children with disabilities and children with a migrant background in the autumn.
  2. Inspire decision makers, employers and social partners to improve their policies/practices, to ultimately contribute to higher quality ECEC.

Agata D’Addato from Eurochild will be speaking about the concept of Early Childhood Development and present the arguments of the First Years, first priority campaign.

Watch the online event live from 14:00-16:00 Central European Summer Time (CEST) on 10 June!
