D.2.1: Self-assessment ECEC quality instrument (SAGE)

The second part of the project, Work Package 2, began with a comprehensive analysis of the research about the impact of early childhood education and care on the development of children’s basic skills at primary and secondary school.

Based on this work,  a set of quality indicators that will frame a self-applied quality assessment tool was produced. The tool is called the “Self-assessment ECEC quality instrument (SAGE)” and has been  piloted in 18 early childhood education and care centres across Europe.

Following this, a large-scale survey will be conducted in 12 European countries to gain a global picture of the quality of these centres. The final task is to discuss the findings with young children, families and staff of the centres involved in this work package to make policy recommendations for high quality early childhood education and care.
