Inclusive education at the kindergarten level does not only mean the integration of children with special needs, but also involves another approach of preschool pedagogy, an inclusive or curricular approach which essentially captures and highlights two basics concepts: uniqueness and diversity. Education for all supposes proper use of the human, material and methodological resources, so that each player of the educational process has the opportunity to learn and develop. Starting from all of these, we decided to create this project in order to educate and support personal and social development of happy, independent and positive children under the careful supervision of professional and personal developed teachers which offer quality services, in order to integrate the children in a multicultural society and also they can change the mentalities and prejudices among the parents.
The four partner kindergartens from Romania, Turkey, Lithuania and Macedonia aim to create an inclusive educational act by collecting innovative methods and strategies in a guide of good practices, strengthening international partnerships
by developing the transversal competences of the teachers and ensuring a inclusive environment in units, by developing the social skills of the members of the educational process.
Through this project we want to emphasize not only the possibilities and premises of children’s progress, but also the potential and motivation for change and development of teachers, as well as focusing parents’ attention on children’s education.
