SIG 5 Learning and Development in Early Childhood Conference 2022

Childcare field visits

In collaboration with several child care organizations, we will organize field visits on Monday July 11 to give you a unique insight in the Dutch child care system. We will start with a general introduction on how child care is organized and monitored in the Netherlands. Then we travel in small groups to several child care facilities in and near Utrecht to have a look inside. Participating in the field visits requires registration but is free of charge.
