Transitions to preschool for children in poverty

Research project funded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO, Research Project Child Poverty).
Qualitative research project about the first school and learning experiences of children in poverty transitioning to pre-primary Education in Flanders. The study aims at unravelling the offered and missed learning opportunities for these children and the specific mechanisms that facilitate or hinder the reproduction of social inequality in kindergarten. By so doing, the study wants to draw implications and recommendations for practice and teacher training programs.
