With support from the Developmental Research Center for Educational Initiatives, a national REYN network was launched in Slovenia in April 2013, in order to connect professionals, para-professionals and activists, who work with Roma children and their parents, and to promote successful integration of Roma children in regular pre-school education.
The purpose of this national network is to become an inclusive and professional learning community in which members, through joint work, develop a variety of skills, share experiences, promote best practices, establish effective partnerships and support their professional development.
The network is bringing together professionals involved in various activities in the field of early childhood education that take place within the project “Raising social and cultural capital in areas with Roma communities” (DSKK project). They were invited to join REYN Slovenia through various trainings and monthly follow-up activities that are implemented in the framework of the DSKK project. The aim is to broaden the network with members from various professional fields, to become advocates for equal opportunities and quality education for Romani children.
Within REYN Slovenia, there will be events that are primarily intended to promote the Slovenian and international REYN. We invite Roma and non-Roma professionals to become members of these networks for shared learning in the early childhood development field and to becoming ambassadors for Romani children’s learning and development on the national and international level.
