Early Childhood Ireland is delighted to offer the early childhood sector an opportunity to reflect on and discuss the critical importance of early childhood experiences for children age birth-3 years. We have designated a week for early childhood professionals, students, researchers, mentors & policy makers to engage with the world-renowned Tuscan approach – led by Aldo Fortunati.
During their week-long visit, Aldo, accompanied by Arianna Pucci, will be part of a number of seminars and public lectures, aimed at those with an interest in the concepts and practices of quality experiences for under 3’s. Their inputs, with photos, video and documentation, will bring to life the daily experience of settings for under 3’s in San Minato, where they have developed a network of settings that exemplify the Tuscan approach.
