Save the Date: Scientific conference “Ensuring children’s rights in daycare centers” on 19.10.2023
10 July 2023
Scientific conference on 19.10.2023 at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam in cooperation with the Institute for Further Education, Research and Development (IFFE e.V.) and the German League for the Child
Today, more and more young children spend a lot of time in day care centers: The proportion of two-year-olds has doubled in the last 15 years, and the proportion of one-year-olds has even tripled. Children do not have to meet any linguistic, cognitive, or other prerequisites for their rights to promotion, participation, and protection to be guaranteed in day care. It is the responsibility of pedagogical actors to respect children’s rights, to adapt to children’s developmental needs and to ensure their well-being.
At the conference, findings from empirical research on the design of everyday situations in daycare centers will be compiled. In the light of children’s rights, pedagogical action will be analyzed and discussed in the context of findings on attachment and relationship: What is imperative to design everyday situations in a child-friendly way? In which situations and under which conditions do impairments of the child’s well-being occur? How can they be avoided in daycare centers and how can daycare centers be supported in this?
We cordially invite you to discuss these important questions.
Among the participating scientists are Prof. Dr. Lieselotte Ahnert, Prof. Dr. Fabienne Becker-Stoll, Prof. Dr. Astrid Boll, Prof. Dr. Dorothee Gutknecht, Prof. Dr. Frauke Hildebrandt, Prof. Dr. Karsten Krauskopf, Prof. Dr. Jörg Maywald, Prof. Dr. Iris Nentwig-Gesemann, Bianka Pergande, Prof. Dr. Regina Remsperger-Kehm, Prof. Dr. Susanne Viernickel, Prof. Dr. Catherine Walter-Laager, Prof. Dr. Dörte Weltzien.

PINA supports the call “Day care centres must protect children’s rights!”
22 December 2022
In recent days, several reports on the subject of misconduct and violence in day-care centres have been in the media. Daycare centres are good for children if the daycare centres are good. Unfortunately, however, borderline violations are also part of children’s everyday daycare life. We stand in solidarity with the children. We feel obliged to seize the moment of public attention. We stand up for the protection of children’s rights. At the same time, it is our concern to strengthen daycare centres and educational professionals.
To read the full appeal, download the PDF here.
On openPetition you can sign the call and forward it to friends.
