Welcome to Baytna Hub’s third year!
Baytna Hub: a centre for creative activities for preschool children 0-6 years old and their carers by Athens Comics Library.
In 2019 Athens Comics Library joined forces with Refugee Trauma Initiative to create a safe and creative space for refugee and migrant children and their caregivers, hosted at the Athens Comics Library. Athens Comics Library is proud to be selected by RTI as one of the Baytna Hubs in Greece. Since October 2019, our Hub has served 15 families, whose members participated in two sessions every week. Most of the families had 2-3 children, ages from one year old to 6. During that period of time, we had the chance to create a powerful community, to see children grow, interact and learn.
Baytna, meaning “our home” in Arabic, provides high-quality pre-school education and specialist psychosocial support to children aged 2-6 and their parents. The programme strives to give these children the opportunity to learn and play and to develop healthy and secure relationships. Baytna nurtures the attachment between parents and children to enhance the socio-emotional, cognitive, and physical development of children we work with.
Baytna Hub takes place every Monday – Wednesday – Friday 10:00-2:00pm
All our activities are open to all and everyone is welcomed! Participation in the program is free.
