It will stock of the first project phase, which has been running since January 2017. Over the past two years, TOY for Inclusion has set up eight Play Hubs for community-based early childhood education and care in seven European countries (Belgium, Italy, Latvia, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary and Slovakia).

The project will continue at least until January 2021.

So far, the project has been successful in fostering social inclusion of Romani young children and families, enhancing social cohesion and easing out the transition to primary school.
