Perepelyuk, Inna
Comparative Professional Pedagogy, v7 n4 p145-151 Dec 2017
The problem of the relationship between a child's institution and a family that acquires a new social significance has been considered. It has been defined that for the current level and pace of civilization development, cooperation with the pupils' families goes beyond the educators' implementation of the traditional social order for supervision, education and training of children. Parents themselves show an increasing desire not to passively observe the process of raising their child in a preschool institution, but to be an active participant. The cooperation of parents and educators as partners in the child's upbringing is a stable and expressive tendency of modern preschool functioning. It has been substantiated that modern teachers of pre-school establishments need a thorough preparation that will allow them not only to implement innovative approaches to the education and child's upbringing, but also to involve parents in this process, create conditions for fruitful constructive cooperation with the family. Polish experience can serve as an important source for future teachers to prepare for cooperation with the child's family on a qualitatively new level. In Poland there are peculiar standards of good quality work of kindergarten, including fruitful cooperation between parents and teachers. Integration of a kindergarten with the child's home is a necessity of modern preschool education in the context of caring for a child. It has been established that the use of the "partnership" concept, which means social intercourse based on the equality and voluntariness of partners, is traditionally used in relation to the work of a pre-school institution with parents in Poland. The conditions of the partnership of a preschool institution and a family in the child's upbringing have been revealed, its basic principles (mutual trust, mutual recognition of rights and competence, integration of actions, mutual loyalty) have been analyzed.
