About the Project
Today, qualified professionals in day care centers are faced with many new challenges. Examples of this are the enacted curricula of all the federal states, the expansion of day care facilities for children under three years of age, the high percentage of children with an immigrant background, and the further development of day care facilities at family centers.
So that qualified childhood-education staff can manage this increased range of responsibilities, additional qualification measures are necessary which build upon their already acquired degree.
In January 2009, the project WiFF - Advancing Further Education of Early Childhood Professionals was launched. Following the program "PiK - Professionals in Day Care Centers," with this initiative, the Robert Bosch Stiftung continues in its commitment to professionalizing childhood-education teachers in Germany.
