New TOY for Inclusion resource: What Works Guide

- News

The TOY for Inclusion Play Hubs for Romani and non-Romani children are a powerful integration infrastructure at the local level. We have released a guide on how to get the best out of it.

The guide gives recommendations to practitioners and to local authorities on how to implement Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) Play Hubs at best. The Play Hubs are a great community-based service that support the integration of Roma at the local level.

What are the Play Hubs?

They are are inclusive spaces where children and families from different backgrounds are encouraged to play and learn: while children are allowed to borrow toys, information about childrearing, health, early learning and development is passed on informally to (grand)parents.

So far, the project has created eight Play Hubs for young children in seven EU countries: one in Belgium, Croatia, Latvia, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia and two in Italy.

On November 19th, 2018, an international event in Ghent (Belgium) will take stock of the first two years of TOY for Inclusion.  There, some of the project’s promising practices will be discussed. If you wish to attend register here.
