Contemporary Trends and Developments in Early Childhood Education in China
Zhu, Jiaxiong; Zhang, Jie
Early Years: An International Journal of Research and Development, v28 n2 p173-182 Jul 2008
Early childhood education in China has gone through a century-long development process and has made great progress in the past two decades. Contemporary early childhood education is becoming diverse in its forms and educational approaches, and is aligning itself with the increasingly open and diversified society. It is clear that early childhood education in China is strongly influenced by sociocultural changes and reflects the hybrid of traditional, communist and Western cultures. We should re-think what happened in past years and continue to promote reform and development in early childhood education.
