Last week ICDI’s Margaret Kernan – in the picture with the hungarian childhoood experts Gábor Patyi and Réka Kissné Zsámboki of Sopron University – presented the tool TOY for Quality to the international audience of the 28th EECERA Annual Conference, which took place on the banks of the Danube in Budapest.
TOY for Quality is an assessment tool which provides information for practitioners working with Intergenerational learning initiatives to be able to actively assess and continually improve the quality of intergenerational learning services and programmes. After being piloted with success by TOY partners in Italy, Slovenia and Spain, it will be launched in October 2018.
About 1000 delegates from 62 countries attended the Conference. It was a great opportunity to debate new research on early childhood, create new collaborations, develop and exchange new project ideas, and of course meet and have fun with experts of early childhood education from all around the world.
