Refugee Access to Early Childhood Education and Care in the UK

Refugee Access to Early Childhood Education and Care in the UK

This report written by Monica Poulter (Teacher Development Manager at Cambridge Assessment English), Dr Brechtje Post and Prof. Ianthi Maria Tsimpli, forms part of an Erasmus project involving educationalists in the Netherlands, UK, Belgium and Norway. The overall objective of the project is to enhance the quality of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) for preschool refugee children by providing tools to educators, child-care professionals and policy makers.

The project culminates in a Conference in Leiden on 17 June which aims to investigate ways in which the examples of best practice and the resources identified in the project can be used for the professional development of ECEC providers. It is also hoped that increased awareness of the barriers which may prevent refugee parents from accessing free provision in the UK will encourage local authorities, with government support, to facilitate access.
