Innocenti Research Briefs Building Bright Futures: What is needed to expand early childhood education and care for Ukraine's refugee children AUTHOR(S) Bella Baghdasaryan; Ghalia Ghawi; Ivelina Borisova; Vidur Chopra Published: 2023 Innocenti Research Briefs Nine out of every 10 refugees arriving in host countries from Ukraine are women and children. Only 1 in 3 of Ukrainian refugee children are enrolled in early childhood education and care services. This emphasizes the need for expanding and strengthening early childhood education systems to ensure sufficient access for all children, and the integration of Ukranian refugee children in the host-community. These briefs offer recommendations for policymakers on ways to expand services, and how to facilitate the integration of refugee children and their families. Strategies include limiting the barriers that may hinder refugee children's access to ECEC settings, capitalizing existing physical and human resources to address gaps in service delivery, in addition to the inclusion of refugees in national and sub-national plans, data systems and financing, adapting policies and programmes to ensure considerations are made for refugee children. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 13 | Thematic area: Early Childhood, Education | Tags: children in emergency situations, early childhood education, education, refugee children, refugees, ukraine × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Bella Baghdasaryan; Ghalia Ghawi; Ivelina Borisova; Vidur Chopra 2023 Building Bright Futures: What is needed to expand early childhood education and care for Ukraine's refugee children. , pp. 13.
