A Survey of Current Shanghai Early Childhood Education through Kindergarten Directors' Self-Assessment
International Journal of Early Years Education, v13 n2 p113-127 Jun 2005
This paper reports on the findings of a survey conducted in relation to current Shanghai early childhood education via a self-assessment tool developed by the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI). The investigation results of the most items are consistent with the values which the designer of the self-assessment tool holds. It shows that, to a great extent, the beliefs of the staff in early childhood care and education institutions (ECCEI) in Shanghai are consistent with the principles of the "Global guidelines for early childhood education and care in the 21st century" determined by the ACEI. In relation to care and education practices, the real situation of the staff of ECCEI in Shanghai is basically consistent with the results of the investigation.
