Our vision:
"The institutions increasingly see the provision of qualified assistance to children as a way to ensure their well-being. Recommendation (2002 ) 8 on assistance to children daytime, the Council of Europe defines the qualified assistance to children as an important factor that contributes to social cohesion, to the extent that it helps to promote the social, emotional , intellectual and physical of all children and gives them the opportunity to make their voices heard about issues that affect them."

(Council of Europe - Explanatory Report of Recommendation R (2006) 19 of the Committee of Ministers to member states concerning the policies to support parents)
