Abstract/Notes: Studies have identified the mismatch between theory and practice as the main reason for gap between the intended and the achieved curriculum objectives. The early childcare education is no exception. Theories of child development emphasize that children learn best through play and self-discovery. Unfortunately, research results revealed that caregivers do not adhere to the prescribed pedagogy and since pedagogy stems from the theory of the nature of the learner and how he learns; it implies that failure to use the right pedagogy adversely affects the achievement of the objectives. The study therefore sought to identify caregivers’ knowledge of integrating Montessori, Indigenous Communicative Teaching and Reggio Emilia approaches in Early Childhood Care Education in Owerri Educational zone, Imo State, Nigeria. The study is a descriptive survey with the population comprising all caregivers in government approved pre-primary schools totalling 119, using a 39-item questionnaire and percentages as well as chi square for data analyses. Results showed that respondents were not knowledgeable. Recommendations include the need to monitor caregivers to ensure compliance to stipulated policy.Keywords: childcare education, caregivers

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this study is to explore the attachment stability of child care center teachers with infants receiving care education all day and to examine the relationship of infants with child care center teachers in terms of attachment stability according to the background variable and professional recognition of the teachers. The research questions explored to realize the purpose of this study are as follows. 1. What is the nature of the attachment stability of child care center teachers with children at an all day program? 2. What is the nature of the attachment stability of child care center teachers with children according to the background variable of childcare center teachers (age, education, background, career history, marriage status)? 3. What is the nature of attachment stability of child care Center teachers with children according to the professional recognition of child care Center teachers. The subjects of this study are 181 infants aged zero, one, and two who attend 181 child care centers in K city of Chungcheongnamdo and their 51 teachers. In order to measure professional recognition of the teachers, the questionnaire used in earlier studies on professional recognition of child care center teachers amended/supplemented. Also, to measure the attachment stability between teachers and infants, the attachment Q-set developed by Waters and Deane (1985) was amended/supplemented as thirty questions from a total of ninety questions of the attachment Q-set. The results of this study are as follows. First, the average grade for attachment stability of child care center teachers with infants was .36, that is similar to those found in earlier studies conducted in our country. Second, there were differences in terms of attachment stability of infants according to the educational background, career history, and marriage status of child care Center teachers. Third, there was difference in terms of attachment stability with infants depending on the professional recognition of child care Center teachers. / 본 연구에서는 보육교사의 배경원인 및 전문성 인식이 영아의 애착안정성에 미치는 영향에 대해 알아보았다. 연구의 대상은 충청남도 K시에 위치한 어린이집 18곳에서 표집된 영아 181명과 그들의 담임교사 51명을 대상으로 하였다. 본 연구의 결과는 다음과 같다. 첫째, 보육교사의 변인에 따른 영아와의 애착안정성 차이를 알아본 결과 보육교사의 학력, 경력, 결혼 여부에 따라 애착안정성은 통계적으로 유의미한 차이가 있는 것으로 나타났다. 즉 보육교사의 학력이 높을수록 영아와의 애착안정성이 높았으며, 경력은 낮을수록 영아와의 애착안정성이 높았고, 기혼보다는 미혼인 경우가 영아와의 애착안정성이 더 높았다. 둘째, 보육교사의 전문성인식에 따른 영아와의 애착안정성을 알아본 결과 보육교사의 전문성 인식이 영아와의 애착안정성에 정적 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다. 특히 전문성 인식의 하위요인에서 직업윤리성과 전문적 기술 및 지식영역이 영아와의 애착안정성에 정적 영향을 미치고, 공정성과 직업만족도는 영아와의 애착안정성에 부적영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다.

The Role of the Child Care Worker in the Treatment of Severely Burned Children

Available from: American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)

Publication: Pediatrics, vol. 50, no. 4

Pages: 617-624

See More

Abstract/Notes: Experience with 57 children suggests that the physical and psychological rehabilitation of severely burned children is promoted in a positive and child-oriented environment. It has also suggested that the child care worker, functioning as an integral member of the burn team, can help establish a more peaceful relationship between the child and his environment and insulate him, by means of repeated positive encounters, from the threatening and often seemingly hostile world around him, while preparing him eventually to meet it. Thus, the child care worker can offer to the child the critical support and understanding needed throughout the long period of hospitalization by helping create a more normal and child-centered environment.
