Keywords: early childhood education, inclusion, city-village, best practices

Abstract

In this paper, we want to address the issue of the relationship between social space, education methods and institutions that carry out education today and project the future of the society: human, social, economic and cultural. The inclusion of infants and children in education in our day in the Korça region, Albania, has attracted the attention of the University and local municipal institutions, in order to form them in accordance with the best educational programs and perspectives used today. The programs and curricula that take place today at our University aim to build an education with contemporary standards, in cooperation with local administrations and organized institutions that care for infants and children.

Children are constantly learning and absorbing new information wherever they go, not just in formal learning environments. There are many ways to incorporate children’s learning and engagement in various aspects of a city’s built environment. Such projects like kids mapping exercise, photo/visual media, technology, natural learning, brain builder, make place for children, etc., are designed to engage children in learning on the go. There are some best practices that build the children of the future, who grow up in the harmony with nature and society.
