The objective of MECEC+ was to conduct a comparative study regarding the Multicultural Childhood Education in the partners’ countries.

One of the long-term goals of this project was to contribute to improving inclusion of children at a disadvantage and the development of their skills necessary to ensure equal opportunities in subsequent education and the achievement of good learning. According to different studies, early (preschool) education is essential for school success, for the prevention of early school leaving and for the cultural and social integration of children, but also, indirectly, of families. Furthermore, good pre-school care supports women’s access to the labor market, and this factor is fundamental for socio-economic integration and the achievement of a decent standard of living for immigrant families and members of ethnic minorities.

Thanks to this project, partners shared different innovative methodologies to analyze and solve different problems, they acquired knowledge and tools in order to develop new university-level training on the ECEC as a tool for the inclusion and development of the skills of children at risk of social exclusion, in particular immigrants and Roma.
