The National Network for Children is sending an opinion to the Ministry of Education and Science regarding the draft curriculum for pre-school education.
In it, the Network for Children insists on improving the quality of services for education and care in early childhood, in particular breaking the “object” model of learning in kindergartens and focusing on areas of child development and areas of expertise. For example, the subjects Man and Society, Language and Communication, Science and Creativity and Aesthetics will help children learn to think more complexly, to make connections between theory and practice and apply this knowledge in everyday life.
We recommend programmes for early childhood education and care to include methods for children’s active involvement, to use the incentive of games as a fundamental form of activity , to monitor and evaluate of each child’s progress, with comparisons made with the child’s entry level.
We are ready to engage with our experts in the development and implementation of standards for the development of children from 3 to 7 years, in the same way as standards for the development of children from 0 to 3 years are being developed and validated at the moment. So far, this age group is only provided with preschool programs in accordance with state educational requirements (SER).
