Early childhood policies and systems in eight countries : findings from IEA's early childhood education study by Tony Bertram( )

20 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides an overview of policy strategies on early childhood education settings (from birth to primary schooling) in eight countries. Data were collected using a policy questionnaire addressed to and completed by the National Research Coordinator(s) (NRC) of Chile, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Poland, the Russian Federation and the United States. The countries that participated provide interesting illustrations of early childhood education policy in action in a range of diverse contexts. Analysis of the systemic and structural results of ECE policy at national and, where necessary, subnational levels, enables transnational comparisons in policy and systems. Key policy changes, both underway and planned, are documented. These data reveal key findings in each of the five policy areas as covered in the questionnaire and this report: public policy; delivery models and providers; participation and enrollment; quality assurance systems; and expectations for child outcomes. In particular, the study aims to provide meaningful information for countries, states and jurisdictions across the world in relation to early childhood education, mapping the systems, structures and user pathways in place, along with the perceptions of stakeholders about the system, its functioning and impact. This comprehensive assessment of the wider policy contexts and settings for early childhood education includes teacher/practitioner qualifications, pedagogy approaches, and opportunities for professional development. Such information will enable countries to review their early childhood education systems in an international context

Each chapter offers clear guidance on how to recognise the theory in action within the setting and suggests ways to test these ideas out in early years' settings, supporting the development of reflective practice. Case studies are included throughout, along with questions to guide thinking and encourage readers to develop their practice. Summaries conclude each chapter offering a quick reference of the theory examined and the benefits of applying it to practice.

Effective early learning : case studies in improvement by Christine Pascal( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the authors discuss criteria and methodologies for evaluating and improving the quality of learning, and show how to evaluate practice and create action plans for improvement. They present a variety of case studies, including: a family centre; LEA nursery unit; a workplace nursery, an LEA nursery class; an inner-city reception class in a primary school; private day nurseries; and a social services day nursery. Each example is accompanied by a set of questions which highlight important features of the research process and suggest ways in which early years practitioners can examine and reflect on their own practice
Early childhood education and change in diverse cultural contexts by Christine Pascal( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Change is now a dominant feature of early childhood systems around the globe and many countries are currently facing significant economic, social and political developments that bring additional challenges that teaching and learning practices need to be able to respond to in a positive and effective way. Early Childhood Education and Change in Diverse Cultural Contexts examines how the educational systems in different countries respond to this change agenda, what they prioritise and how they deal with the adjustment process. Based on original and cutting-edge research and drawing upon diverse theoretical approaches, the book analyses new policies and pedagogical practices in a wide range of different cultural contexts. With contributions from Great Britain, the USA, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Estonia, New Zealand, South Africa and Singapore, this volume examines how educators might be able to innovate and respond positively to the shifting social and cultural situations in these contexts and others like them. Focusing on early childhood policy, professionalism and pedagogy, the book stimulates debate and dialogue about how the field is moving forward in the 21st century. Early Childhood Education and Change in Diverse Cultural Contexts should be essential reading for academics, researchers and postgraduate students engaged in the study of early childhood education, childhood studies and comparative education. Providing practical examples of how educational systems and educators might respond to change imperatives, the book should also be of great interest to teacher educators, current and pre-service teachers and policymakers around the world

Four year old children in reception classrooms : participant perceptions and practice by Tony Ghaye( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study conducted at a primary school in Birmingham, England, considered teachers', college tutors', parents', and pupils' perceptions of the way in which a group of 4-year-old children became incorporated into two reception classes. Study methodology included teacher and researcher observations and the videotaping and photographing of six types of social episodes at school: dressing and undressing, playtime, drinks, table-based work, lunchtime, and coming to school and going home. Home-based activities included a survey of 62 parents (with a 75% response rate), diaries kept by parents of seven 4-year-olds about conversations with their children, and tutor-parent-child discussions. Study findings suggested that children may be most under stress during the first important weeks of school when students are separating from their parents, siblings, and homes; when they are in transition from one activity to another; and when they are being incorporated into the class as a group. The child-school incorporation process is a dynamic, multifaceted, interactive process including all the participants involved. Appropriate changes and improvements in policy and practice must be based on a cognizance of the impact of separation, transition, and incorporation on children. At the school serving as the site of the study, a number of such changes have been made in the areas of home-school links, admission policy, classroom practice, and appraisal and development of policy and practice.

Pedagogisch management in de kinderopvang( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in Dutch and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Het handboek Pedagogisch management in de kinderopvang wil een leidraad bieden voor het debat over eigentijdse kinderopvang. Het boek bestaat uit drie delen. Het eerste deel geeft inspiratie voor een pedagogische reflectie en bevat teksten die de blik verruimen en de kinderopvang in internationaal, sociaal en politiek perspectief plaatsen. Het tweede deel rapporteert over inspirerende praktijken uit buiten- en binnenland. Bekende modellen als van het Emmi Pikler-instituut of de Reggio-benadering worden kritisch tegen het licht gehouden, maar ook bij ons mogelijk minder bekende uitwerkingen als de Zweedse förskola, de Britse Integrated Centres en de Franse crèches parentales komen aan bod. Het derde deel reikt een basis aan voor een effectief management in de kinderopvang. Veel aandacht gaat uit naar het bevorderen van motivatie en zelfsturing van teams. Een brede groep deskundigen uit Vlaanderen, Nederland en Groot-Brittannië werkte mee aan dit handboek

"Written in association with the European Early Childhood Education Research Association (EECERA), titles in this series will reflect the latest developments and most current research and practice in early childhood education on a global level. Feeding into and supporting the further development of the discipline as an exciting and urgent field of research and high academic endeavour, the series carries a particular focus on knowledge and reflection, which has huge relevance and topicality for those at the front line of decision making and professional practice. ... Rather than following a linear approach of research to practice, this series offers a unique fusion of research, theoretical, conceptual and philosophical perspectives, values and ethics, and professional practice, which has been termed 'Ethical Praxis'." --Description from publisher Web Site (, viewed July 2, 2018)
