The New Initial Programme for Preschool Teachers in Slovenia.
De Batistic, Marcela; Plestenjak, Madja
Studies have shown that early years teachers are the most influential factor contributing to the quality of early years education. Well-educated teachers are professionally more competent and can decisively influence the quality of curriculum, which is becoming less and less centrally defined. This article describes the creation of a new program for the education of preschool teachers in Slovenia, which is the result of changes throughout the state school system. The article begins with a brief description of the current teacher education program and lists five reasons for its reform. The article next describes the process of developing the program, including research undertaken to compare Slovenia's system to other European countries, the list of issues addressed, and the parties involved. It then describes the program itself, including assumptions on which it is based, its aims, areas of knowledge into which the program is organized, its use of practice teaching, and its syllabus. Contains nine references. (EV)
