Policy and Strategy Toolkit is now available!

The Policy and Strategy Toolkit includes a set of strategies based on:

  • a collection of lessons learned and challenges during the PBS-ECEC train the trainers program and implementation of PW-PBS in the participating countries
  • promising practices with concrete and practical examples
  • policy recommendations
  • easy-to-use tools for ECEC professionals and policymakers to adequately and efficiently implement PW-PBS

When exploring this Toolkit, all the recommendations interconnect and are interdependent in such a way that they build on each other. Their full implementation across educational settings and systems is expected to create a synergistic effect.
