Gemeenten en de aanpak van kindermishandeling vanaf 2015

Publication date: 12/2014
Author: De ArgumentenFabriek
Series: Reports No 3

From January 2015, youth care in the Netherlands will become the responsibility of municipalities - including prevention of violence against children and care of children who have suffered from child abuse. Around 118,000 children fall victim to child abuse in the Netherlands every year, and the effectiveness of municipal policies and professional care have a huge impact on their lives and future.

Together with 20 experts from youth care, the police and municipalities, the Bernard van Leer Foundation has developed this publication to set out who does what from 2015, the three biggest changes for municipalities and bottlenecks around the prevention of child abuse. It explains why prevention of child abuse should not be seen as a linear process (from prevention to after care) but as a cycle (signal, discuss, research, decide and act).

XTR: Jong geleerd

Publication date: 09/2014
Author: Various
Series: Reports No 2

This is the publication ‘Jong geleerd’ (taught early), a 20-page supplement of the Dutch newspaper NRC weekend, about the importance of investing in the early years. The supplement is an initiative of the Bernard van Leer Foundation. Scientific research proves that investing in the development of young children is of great importance; for individuals, but also for our economy and society. However, the attention for the importance and impact of early learning is still very limited in the Netherlands. We hope that this supplement can be of influence in changing this. Sharing knowledge on this topic and increasing opportunities for young children is one of the key objectives of the Bernard van Leer Foundation.

Exploration of the Status of Services for Immigrant Families in Early Childhood Education Programs

Publication date: 03/2014
Author: Colleen K. Vesely and Mark R. Ginsberg
Series: Research Reports No 13

Immigrants make up at least 15 percent of the population in more than 50 countries. In 2005, “One in every three international migrants lived in Europe and one in every four international migrants lived in North America.”  At age 3 and 4, children in immigrant families were less likely to be enrolled in preschool than their native-born counterparts. The goal of this study was to add to researchers’ and practitioners’ understanding of how early childhood education (ECE) programs are currently working with immigrant children and families. Using qualitative case study methodology, including in-depth interviews with teachers, program staff, and parents as well as field observations in ECE programs in the United States and in Eastern Europe, analyses were conducted with respect to how high-quality programs work with immigrant families. Through qualitative analyses, four principles emerged as particularly important for working with immigrant families: (1) improving quality of and access to ECE programs for immigrant families; (2) building relationships with immigrant parents and families; (3) supporting immigrant parents’ identity development and representation in their communities; and (4) fostering staff dynamics, development, and well-being. Each of these is explored individually in the report, in terms of dynamics as well as recommendations for ECE programs currently working with immigrant families.
