Edited by Katja Repo, Maarit Alasuutari, Kirsti Karila and Johanna Lammi-Taskula
Chapter 8: Early childhood education and care in times of transition: the role of policy reforms and advocacy processes in improving the accessibility of services for young children and their families
The analysis carried out in this chapter will explore the issue of equal access to educational opportunities in the context of the current reform trends that affect the governance, regulation and funding of early childhood education and care provision in Italy. The chapter will examine the conditions upon which the reciprocal interactions between governmental reforms and bottom-up policy advocacy processes can sustain early childhood education and care services’ institutional change and pedagogical innovation for responsively addressing the newly emerging needs of children and families in contemporary society as well as nourishing their potentialities.
