Parenting support has been placed on the political agenda in Europe for the last decade (OECD, 2008, 2009 ; Eurofund, 2011). But a close look to the major discourse can reveal that the interest is very often linked to a compensatory vision of a so-called « deficiency » on behalf of some parents (social control). The symposium has proposed to explore the notion of « meeting places for children and parents » : their characteristics, the driven goals, the values shared by professionals . These places where parents can share « hic et nunc » their own experiences and expertise as parents (not in a preventive purpose) are considered as possible ways of questioning the compensatory approach. Characteristics of meeting places as learning communities have been displayed through a presentation of inspiring practices from different contexts: Italy, Flanders and Federation Wallonia-Brussels. Informal social networks among parents and children are an important source of parental support. Meeting places are settings where such informal networks and social cohesion are facilitated among families with diverse backgrounds. The staff (both professionals and volunteers) plays an important role in facilitating the informal contacts between parents and children. Their role as a “host” (instead of being pedagogical experts) demands specific individual competences and systemic conditions. [less ▲]

Research has shown that quality provisions (0-6) can have a positive effect on children’s development (Unicef, 2008, Nesse, 2009, EACA, 2009). In 1992, Belgium has ratified the Convention on the rights of the Child that mentions each child has the right to express his opinion, to be heard in all matters that concern his life. More globally rights to take part, to “participate” have been recognized to every child since birth. But the obstacles to give a voice to children who are often considered as having any are numerous: the risk to consider them like an “object” of care is higher when the children are under 3. The workshop has proposed to explore and question the nature and the extent of participation for those children that are taken care in ECEC services (out of their families). What has been central was questioning participation of little ones, proposing an analysis of selected literature, discussions on how to sustain professionals to see children as actors in everyday life.

Despite the fact that Belgium has ratified the Convention on the Rights of theCchild in 1992, few children with special needs, aged 0-3, are effectively taken care in ECEC services. When it appears that they have access to services, care is focused on their deficiency, professionals often consider access as a favour done to the child and its family who is seen first as having special needs (instead of being first a child with competences). The workshop has proposed to explore and question the nature and the extent of participation for those children that are taken care in ECEC services (out of their families). Some questions have been explored and discussed: - Is little children's participation more rhetoric than reality? What are the representations about rights of children in situation of handicap to participate? What if we compare to protection and provision rights? - What does “participation” mean for little children in situation of handicap in an ECEC service? - How the representations adults have can work on conditions to participate? The necessity to adopt a thinking where the focus is placed on each child’s competences and interests … [less ▲]

L’intervention, effectuée avec le Dr Mauroy (ONE), a porté sur le rôle que jouent les professionnels dans les services EAJE et le regard qu’ils peuvent partager sur le développement et le bien-être du jeune enfant et des attentes des parents lorsque l’enfant est accueilli en dehors de sa famille. Lorsqu’un professionnel est confronté à la situation d’un enfant qui arrive dans la structure avec un handicap connu, il peut aborder plus facilement les besoins spécifiques de l’enfant et s’engager, avec les parents, dans une relation constructive dans laquelle chacun visera à établir une communication la plus transparente possible. Mais lorsqu’aucun problème de santé ni de développement n’est a priori signalé et qu’au fil du séjour, il relève des indicateurs « hors norme » à propos du développement de l’enfant, le professionnel fait face à des questionnements éthiques qui gagnent à être mis à plat, discutés et partagés en équipe (à l’interne du service, mais également avec les partenaires extérieurs). L’exposé a tenté de proposer quelques pistes de réflexion autour de ces questions, en posant un focus important sur l’observation professionnelle de l’enfant : quelles observations ? dans quel cadre ? quel retour aux parents ? qui effectue ce retour ? sous quelles formes ? Quelles attitudes attendues des professionnels de l’enfance ? [less ▲]

L'article propose une réflexion sur la place des familles dans les services d'accueil de la petite enfance en Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles à partir de l'analyse des prescrits récemment parus, de la production d’outils de référence professionnels et de différentes expériences de terrain. Cet examen de l’évolution du cadre légal, des documents de référence et de leur mode de production en Belgique francophone a fait apparaître la valorisation d’une attention à accorder aux familles dans les services de la petite enfance. L’expérience de terrain montre le décalage entre les prescrits et leur mise en œuvre qui se révèle extrêmement variable. Des tensions opèrent tant au niveau de l’accessibilité des services que dans la manière dont l’accueil quotidien fait place aux familles. Cette réflexion contribue à définir les enjeux de la professionnalisation. [less ▲]

Despite the fact that Belgium has ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1992, few children with special needs are taken care of in mainstream services. When they have access to a service, everything is focused on their deficiency. Professionals think they have to be trained to give what is considered as the “right” treatment to make the child « catch the others up ». There is an alternative way of thinking that focuses on each child’s competences. Adopting this way of thinking means to consider that what matters is every little thing a child can bring to the group, whatever his characteristics may be, and how he can benefit from daily life with other children and adults. The workshop has been focused on conditions that can help increase quality provisions : Who is welcomed everyday? How does an ECEC service welcome each family? Are there children and families who don’t come to ECEC services? Why don’t they come? Are they sufficiently informed on the inclusive approach of ECEC services, Etc The conference has referred to some testimonies collected by professionals from the French Community of Belgium.

For the last years, several laws have been issued in the French Community of Belgium to enhance “inclusion” of children with special needs, but it is not sufficient. The main issue is to reach necessary conditions to support everyone (each child and his family) to feel welcome in an ECEC service whatever their characteristics should be. Several groups of professionals having various qualifications and trainings have started to join in a network and reflect on conditions necessary to welcome daily every child and family while sharing experiences, defining strong options to “co-construct” inclusive spaces open to everybody in regards to his / her competencies, interests, possibilities. While leaning on tools and research results at their disposal, they have tried to determine possibilities to take everybody into account, to make differences visible, valuable and seen as a part of the whole society. Thank to this work, they have found out conditions for a long-term partnership and for what is needed to set up and reinforce a network of local integrated actions. One of the main options worked out and linked to DECET research. [less ▲]

The conference has been centred on an approach of conditions that make each and every child really feel welcome in ECEC services. Following the European childcare network activities in the nineties, the French Community Government (Belgium) has decided to issue the Quality and Care Code : every person who takes care of a child aged 0 to 12 has to elaborate and implement an educational project called in French “projet d’accueil”. This project has to follow the objectives defined by the Quality and Care Code. There is an essential challenge, on various levels of course, but more specifically in terms of development of ECEC services quality : services should be accessible to every child and his family. A short stop on what is meant by “quality of ECEC services” has been proposed. [less ▲]

Everyone should have the possibility to benefit from an ECEC service where his / her needs are recognized and given individual attention. For the last years, several laws have been issued to facilitate inclusion of children with special needs in the French Community of Belgium, but laws are not sufficient. The point is to think about constructive conditions necessary to welcome daily every child and family. A group of professionals has gathered to share experiences and define options to share competencies, knowledge and experiences in order to give opportunities to everybody to feel welcome in the service, in regards to his / her competencies, interests, possibilities. A main hypothesis that has been examined: an individual care to a child with special needs can transform positively the whole ECEC service and improve quality conditions for everybody. Indeed quality depends both on pedagogical choices made (what is daily proposed to children and their family ?) and on the beneficiaries of the service (who are the children and the family welcomed ?). In the part of the symposium focused on the French Community of Belgium, the results of worshops (increasing partnership with families, giving a place to each child, building a network …) have been discussed.
