The health emergency caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has considerably exacerbated situations at risk of social exclusion, leaving many families and children on the “margins”. Children seem to be paying the greatest consequence, in the first place, as they risk seeing their right to participate in quality education limited. In light of this premise, in this article we will present the results of a research-training experience carried out in partnership with Save the Children within Mothers’ Spaces in Rome and Brindisi, Italy, in order to illustrate how the educational action of these services can be a useful starting point for reflecting on educational actions capable of actively involving children and families and orienting post-emergency educational practices towards social inclusion. In particular, we will focus on the actions taken with regard to the 0-6 age group, which has been considered the one most at risk compared to the problems caused by the pandemic, focusing attention on activities to contain the Learning Loss caused by the prolonged closure of ECEC services during the lockdown.
