Metin Aslan, Özge
Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, v7 n1 p97-110 2018
The purpose of this research; a laboratory preschool located in one of the northern states of the United States of America and operating under the Child Development Institute, explains the practices about the Emergent Curriculum and builds a bridge between theory and practice in preschool education. It is thought that bringing good examples of a laboratory school in the United States with a long history in the field of education to the national domain literature will be especially useful for teachers, researchers and specialists working on this field. The method of the study was carried out by the observational case study which is one of the qualitative research designs. In addition, the document analysis method was used to support the information obtained from the observations over time. Obtained data consisted of observations made by the researcher in the preschool, unstructured teacher interviews, and information obtained from the handbook of the kindergarten. The findings are discussed in the headings on the basis of the Emergent Program: Beginning of the day: Arrival in preschool exploration time and gym, large group time/class meeting, activity time and free play, large and small group activities, use of learning centers, outdoor, role of teacher in practice and role of family and parent involvement practices.
