Launch of new tools on Early Childhood Education and Care

On 3 March, the European Commission presented the work of the Working Group on Early Childhood Education and Care, and launched a Toolkit for inclusive early childhood education and care.  Both Eurochild and ISSA, partners of the Campaign, are part of this working group.

H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Eurochild spoke at the event and presented the First Years First Priority campaign, highlighting the importance of early childhood development and the policies and services needed to ensure all children have a fair start in life.
