Brooklyn College School of Education, Department of Early Childhood and Art Education

The Brooklyn College - Jönköping University Early Childhood Education Exchange is an annual exchange program in which early childhood teachers in training and mentor teachers visit Sweden's world famous preschools.  Gen 2 funding enables NYC educators to experience the very best Early Childhood practice, and -- through a combination of ongoing professional development projects and long-term collaboration with their newfound Swedish colleagues -- bring what they have learned abroad back to their own classrooms.

“I have been given the kind of formative inspiration and education that makes me feel like I now have a set of non-negotiable principles that will define how I think about children and how to best serve them. I feel privileged to have had such rare and altering first influences.”
