Multilingual teaching in early childhood education and care (ECEC) stems from the idea that in a multicultural society, such as Europe, it’s useful for children to learn English or others languages, as a precious resource for their future. In a time of unprecedented economical and social challenges, it’s crucial to give new generations a solid start in life by providing high quality early childhood education and care. Furthermore, it’s necessary to strengthen the profile of teachers and educators by providing an innovative training in the ECEC system and teaching a second language

The project will be developed on the partnership between six Countries (Italy, Czech Republic, Latvia, Poland, Slovenia and Sweden).


The project will increase the knowledge and competences of teachers and educators of ECEC services, mostly in teaching a second language It will improve children’s language skills, laying the foundation for a profitable life-long learning, improving integration and inclusion for foreign children in the hosting country It will offer families a more qualified ECEC system in accordance with a European approach It will create new networks at local, national and European level, through the dissemination of the project results.
