Innovation

It's in our baseline...

In English VBJK's baseline is Centre for Innovation in the Early Years. In French Centre d'Innovation de la Petite Enfance.

This is exactly what we do. At the crossroads of research, policy en practice, we work on high quality ECEC services in Early Childhood Education and Care.

    Guust, Noë en Anna-Lisa zetten hun eerste stappen in de kleuterschool. ‘Dat kan zo overweldigend zijn dat het lijkt alsof je op een andere planeet terechtkomt,’ zegt kleuterleerkracht Bart.

    'Over de streep', zo heet onze nieuwe film over de overgang naar de kleuterschool. Hoe zorg je samen met collega's en ouders voor een goede start? Volg samen met ons de drie kleuters in drie verschillende scholen en ontdek hoe belangrijk het is om elkaar 'over de streep' te trekken.
