About Nieuwland

Nieuwland is an inclusive childcare center offering 98 places for children between 0 and 3 years.

Every child is welcome, but a number of places are reserved for children with specific needs (e.g. disabilities). Inclusive care, as part of the social function of childcare, is one of the corner stones of the vision on childcare, accessible to every child and family, of the City of Ghent.

We aim for individual attention and encourage social behavior in a group for all children. Flexibility by responding to the individuality and the own rhythm of each child is essential in our care.

About this visit

In this field visit you can see how inclusive childcare is realized in Ghent.

We will explore the conditions necessary to achieve inclusive childcare; how we lower the barriers for families with children with special needs, how we help each child find his or her own place in the group, how we approach and explore differences and similarities and how we connect children.

You find a brief description of each location and pedagogical focus of the visit below.
