About Children in Europe:

Children in Europe is the leading publication about early childhood education and care (ECEC) policy studies, research and good practice in Europe. The magazine provides a forum for exchanging ideas, practice and information, celebrates diversity, and contributes to the development of policy and practice at European and national levels. Each issue of the twice-yearly publication has a special focus, featuring articles by experts in the field from across Europe. It is now published simultaneously in 15 languages by a network of national magazines in 17 countries.

Issue description:

This special issue of Children in Europe asks what quality means in services for children under the age of three.

‘Welcome to our world' argues that access to high quality early childhood education and care services is a right for all children under as well as over three. It draws on examples and practice from the UK, Portugal, Italy, Hungary, and elsewhere to illuminate ways of supporting the transition from home to formal services, offering opportunities and environments for active and creative learning, building relationships with families, and developing evaluation on a participatory and collective basis.
