Since the end of the s when OECD published the Brundtland report, in which the concept of sustainable development as a critical global issue was introduced, the role of education for global survival has been frequently discussed and explored, by politicians as well as researchers. In school curricula and educational practice, efforts have been made to include material and issues related to, for example, climate changes and nature resources in teaching and learning. Surprisingly little attention has however been paid to the question of the way and on what premises early childhood education might and should be involved. In this article we discuss some aspects of early childhood education with a bearing on its role in education for sustainable development.

Since the end of the s when OECD published the Brundtland report, in which the concept of sustainable development as a critical global issue was introduced, the role of education for global survival has been frequently discussed and explored, by politicians as well as researchers. In school curricula and educational practice, efforts have been made to include material and issues related to, for example, climate changes and nature resources in teaching and learning. Surprisingly little attention has however been paid to the question of the way and on what premises early childhood education might and should be involved.

In this article we discuss some aspects of early childhood education with a bearing on its role in education for sustainable development. The fact that early childhood education belongs to the larger educational system means that global political and economical issues are involved when planning and conducting education for sustainability in pre-school as much as in the rest of the educational system.

Recent changes in Swedish educational policy, characteristic traits in pre-school pedagogy and the pre-school child as learner of sustainability are commented upon and discussed.

Play and Learning: Inseparable Dimensions to Early Childhood Education

Play as a means or context in early literacy development has been investigated intensively over the past two decades. Christie and Roskos 1 have examined this work and report that a connection exists between pretend play and literacy learning, and further that social and physical environmental factors can favorably influence both play quality and literacy acquisition during the early years. The co-authors note that knowledge gaps remain and that this area is richly fertile with hypotheses that require further research and theory construction. Moreover, their discussion of implications suggests that this research area enjoys dynamic communication with practice and policy in early development and education. The authors suggest that the conceptual roots in the study of play and literacy relationships and the role of the environment can be traced to the theories of Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky, such as in their writings about early symbolization and scaffolding. Although neither classical theorist attempted to explain how play exactly impacts language and literacy development during the early years, constructs found in their work like mental representations, transformational thinking, reflexive abstraction, and social interaction provide clues to help piece together the play-literacy nexus. Research cited on setting variables, such as the presence of environmental print, literacy-enhanced props and adult mediation, and their influence on play quality, also can be traced to traditional child development theories e.

The current study presents an account of mathematics and science knowledgebase of private Gaborone preschool teachers and assesses its influence on their classroom teaching. A pragmatic paradigm with a concurrent mixed-method mode was used to conduct this study. Using a random-purposive sampling procedure, 64 preschool teachers were selected. Questionnaire and focus group discussions were used for data collection. The quantitative data was analysed using descriptive analysis and presented with the help of frequency Tables and Graphs.

This paper presents findings from a case study intended to develop understanding of the practices within education for sustainable development at a preschool in Sweden and highlights its work with two themes: The Health of People and the Planet and Human and Animal Societies. This case study was part of a large school development project conducted by a university in collaboration with a municipality between and The preschool had two units with a total of 36 children aged 1—6 years, and 8 preschool teachers.

Приемный покой представлял собой бесконечный узкий коридор с выстроившимися в ряд во всю его длину складными стульями. Установленная на треноге картонная табличка с надписью OFICINA стрелкой указывала направление. Беккер двинулся по едва освещенному коридору. Все здесь напоминало зловещую декорацию к голливудскому фильму ужасов. В воздухе стоял тяжелый запах мочи.
