Day Care Center
Last year in May, we established a day care center for refugee children in the IFF gallery, where we supported the integration of children from Ukraine, Belarus, Afghanistan, and Poland through artistic activities. Observing with joy the results of our project and recognizing the great needs in this area, we decided to focus on education this year. The day care center, which we are currently creating together with the Children's Development Foundation (SPYNKA Program), has become a permanent part of the IFF Gallery.
SPYNKA in IFF
Together with the Children's Development Foundation, we invite you to SPYNKA - a daytime care facility for the youngest children, as well as a professionally prepared educational program. One of Spynka's goals is to integrate children from Ukraine with their peers in Poland. For both Ukrainian children and their mothers, Spynka’s provide places for adaptation and integration with the local community. They provide a sense of stability and security.

ABOUT THE CHILDREN’S DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION AND SPYNKA PROGRAM
The Children's Development Foundation is a public benefit organization established in 2003 to create the best possible conditions for children at an early stage of development and education. The Foundation conducts research, develops quality standards, supports and trains staff to be as open as possible to the needs of young children from different places and backgrounds.
Since April 2022, the Children's Development Foundation, in partnership with UNICEF, World Childhood Foundation, the International Rescue Committee, and other international charitable organizations, as well as in cooperation with local governments, non-governmental organizations, and institutions, has been implementing the SPYNKA Program, which supports children and mothers from Ukraine.
The foundation of the program is the establishment and operation of Spynka’s - places for childcare and education, which provides an opportunity for mothers to take up employment. Trained individuals from Ukraine and Poland are employed to work with the children.
