The Pre-School: First Step Towards a Better Environment for Children.
This report describes the administrative organizational plans and pedagogical objectives for early childhood education programs in Sweden which have evolved since the passage of the 1973 Pre-School Activities Act. A Central Joint Committee for Pre-schools will be set up to advise both the Board of Health and Welfare and the Board of Education. Within the individual municipalities, pre-school activities are to be the responsibility of the central social services committee, although, according to the government bill, the various forms of pre-school activity will be guided by a uniform educational approach. The approach is based on interplay and cooperation between children and adults, children and children, and adults and adults. A description of the organizational model, as set by the 1968 Commission on Child Centres, includes discussions of full- and part-time pre-schools, the staff team, the latest available statistics on enrollment, projected expansion figures, and commissions appointed to review the conditions of pre-school children.
