Due to the coronavirus crisis and the resulting closure of schools, most of the children in Europe had, and still have, to stay at home. Learning from home could be however a great occasion to explore the creativity of children and boost their imagination and self-confidence.
Our partner, the NGO Save the Children, has published a list of activities for kids at home, elaborated hand in hand with their early learning experts. These activities include, for example, dancing, cooking, and crafting. With regard to children with migrant backgrounds, these activities could represent opportunities to investigate and valorise the culture of their countries of origin, as well as a chance to learn more about the one of the host countries.
CHILD-UP researches into the level of integration of migrant children in Europe and their social condition, with the primary aim of providing support for migrant children’s exercise of agency in changing their own conditions of integration and constructing hybrid identities.
