Migrant children often grow up in households only hearing and speaking the native language of their parents and they are challenged by their language skills upon school entry. Early education can address school readiness and language acquisition, enabling children to enter kindergarten with more advanced language skills and at the same time facilitate integration for immigrant families into the host society.
The WelComm project aims at raising awareness of the importance of education for social inclusion of migrants from early age and promoting opportunities for equal start in education.
The partnership is formed by 8 organisations from 6 countries, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Spain, Italy, and Portugal.
The coordinating institution is Pressure Line, Netherlands.
