The ECEC Quality Evaluation Network was established to support the development of the Valssi quality evaluation system and the sharing of information and know-how. The Evaluation Network is tasked with supporting the evaluation and development of activities at the local level. The purpose of the network is to:

  • provide information on the development of Valssi and related evaluation tools
  • organise training and webinars for different personnel groups
  • share know-how and good practices to support the development of evaluation.

The network operates primarily in the HowSpace workspace established for this purpose. The workspace contains e.g. the programme and materials of the network’s meetings as well as a discussion section for the sharing of good practices. The network includes more than 500 representatives of municipal and private ECEC service providers.
