Positive results for school-readiness intervention

This reports on a study in Early Childhood Research Quarterly. It was a randomized controlled trial of an intervention designed to improve the quality of teaching in early childhood settings and increase children’s school readiness.

    Wat mij fascineert is hoe VVE in NL een tijd lang negatief in het nieuws is geweest.

    1. Inderdaad – Maar het niveau van VVE in NL (sorry) is echt niet om over naar huis te schrijven. Onderzoek laat zien als je goed geschoolde docenten met een goed programma uitrust dat het een geweldig en lagdurig effect heeft!
