KiTa ZOOM • financing elementary education effectively
All children need equal educational opportunities, yet each child learns differently. The KiTa ZOOM project, formerly called Financing Elementary Education, tests innovative ways of providing childcare facilities with personnel and other resources that reflect each facility’s specific situation.Project Description
OECD Conference on Early Childhood Education in Paris
Kathrin Bock-Famulla accepted an invitation by the OECD to present information on innovative approaches used in a number of countries for financing elementary education. Over the course of the two-day conference, the international Network for Early Childhood Education examined more effective ways of providing childcare facilities with the resources they need. The Bertelsmann Stiftung has developed an approach that begins by looking at the desired level of quality of education and at the specific challenges faced by the childcare facility. The basic idea is that each facility should be funded based on its individual situation and needs.
