  1. Increased key early competencies and thus the likelihood of early academic success and positive life outcomes for children at EU level.
  2. Increased capacity of parents of preschool children to provide support to children for the development of early key skills and early academic achievement.
  3. ECEC and PS (primary school) teachers relieved from pressure through greater involvement of parents in their children's education.
