The main objective of the Practice is to strengthen and mainstream a gender equality dimension within preschool system and counter gender-related stereotypes and biases.
Short description of the activities
The Practice is carried out by adopting a gender-based pedagogy that aims to help children to fulfil their full potential regardless their gender. As part of the PTOF (Piano Triennale dell’Offerta Formativa – Three-year plan of the educational offer), the Practice contributes to guarantee that different games are freely available to boys and girls and, in this way, they can develop their skills and abilities within a bias-free educational environment.
The Practice has contributed to
- Improve access to quality ECEC services and in an inclusive way
- Support the professionalisation of staff working in ECEC contexts, including managerial staff
- Enhance the development of curricula based on pedagogical goals, values and approaches that enable children to reach their full potential in a holistic way
- Promote the monitoring and evaluation of progress made through the establishment and delivery of high quality ECEC provision and practice.
