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

15 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 162 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( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 140 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."--Provided by publisher

Pedagogisch management in de kinderopvang( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in Dutch and held by 19 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

The Effective Early Learning Project The Quality of Adult Engagement in Early Childhood Settings in the UK by Christine Pascal( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the view that the quality of adult educative interactions with young children is critical in determining the effectiveness of educational provision and in improving early childhood settings, this paper examines the quality of adult engagement experienced by 3- and 4-year-olds in 9 types of early education and care settings from the private, voluntary, and state-funded sectors in the United Kingdom (UK). Evidence was gathered from observations undertaken as part of the Effective Early Learning (EEL) Project, an international research and development initiative in its fifth year of operation which aims to evaluate and improve the quality of early learning in a wide range of education and care settings in the UK, The Netherlands, and Portugal. The Child Involvement Scale and the Adult Engagement Scale were used to measure the effectiveness of the learning and teaching process. The findings demonstrated that adult sensitivity to children is a basic precondition for educative interactions to occur. Stimulation occurs once a level of sensitivity and responsiveness between adults and children has been established. Autonomy is the most challenging aspect of effective educative interactions. Practitioners in all settings displayed high sensitivity during educative interactions. Practitioners in all settings showed relatively low levels of autonomy during educative interactions. State-funded settings showed higher levels of sensitivity, stimulation, and autonomy than voluntary sector settings. Practitioners showed increased sensitivity, stimulation, and autonomy following the implementation of the EEL improvement process, with less well-qualified staff making the greatest progress.

Listening to Children's Perspectives of Their Early Childhood Settings by Elaine Dupree( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Effective Early Learning Programme in the United Kingdom (uk) has included the voice of children as an integral part of their evaluation and improvement process. This study interviewed approximately 945 children from 23 different geographical areas of the uk about their views of certain aspects of their early learning settings. Children were interviewed in groups of three to four and were asked questions about five dimensions of quality; this study focused on three: (1) aims and objectives; (2) learning experience; and (3) relationships and interactions. Findings revealed that children thought they attended day care/preschool to play, to learn, and because their parents were working. More parents than children focused on need for childcare as the main reason for the child attending the setting. Far fewer parents mentioned learning. Children reported a variety of activities they liked best; the most commonly mentioned of these were imaginative play, creative activities, water and sand play, outdoor play, construction play, and language activities. A variety of activities were reported as disliked, the most common of which were creative activities and imaginative play. Children perceived the adults in their setting as being there to provide care, counseling, help, and teaching. They were able to perceive different roles for different adults and could identify differing status accompanying the role. Slightly over half the children indicated that they liked the people at their setting. About half the children thought the people in their setting liked them. Children were very clear about the rules and could identify things they were not allowed to do (such as hurting others or running) and things they must do (including sharing, obeying, learning, listening, and cleaning up). No significant differences were found between four types of settings in answers to questions regarding aims and objectives. (Contains 27 references.) (Kb)
