A Flashback to the Future: 10 Years of Samenspel.
This booklet describes "Samenspel Op Maat," an initiative started 10 years ago as a small-scale experiment to meet the growing need for day care for migrant children in Rotterdam. There are now hundreds of Samenspel groups in the Netherlands consisting of play afternoons for small groups of mothers and young children, usually under the guidance of professionals who come from the same community. The program does not target only children from ethnic and cultural minorities but focuses more generally on children in disadvantaged situations. The booklet describes the program's history, efforts, and successes, and includes comments on the program from participants and others involved with policy or programs for young children in the region.
