We had the participation of Professor Sandra Durán Chiappe in the initial conference on Early Childhood Education, who highlighted the 85th anniversary of Preschool Section in our school. Working sessions and panel discussions were held with external guests, with teachers from the UPN, from Centro Cultural Reyes Católicos and IED Usaquén, within Proyecto Fronteras framework, and with teachers from the IPN. Topics related to inclusion, political participation, integrated curriculum, interdisciplinarity and evaluation were discussed.

We thank the organizers and all those who contributed to carry out this event.
