Abstract/Notes: Early childhood education in North America is currently in a state of flux. While Piagetian approaches to early childhood education curricula seem to predominate in North America today, some of the influences of the other paradigms discussed below are still in evidence. The idea of nurturing children as well as educating them has endured, even with the new cognitive focus. The concept of curricula appropriate to a child’s developmental level, first introduced by Froebel, has remained an important idea. The Montessori method has enjoyed a renaissance in North America, and specially designed curricula for the disabled has been re-established as the norm, after Itard’s and Seguin’s pioneering examples. Yet, new issues in early childhood education have arisen in North America. There is a great debate on the effects of day care, the changing family, the possibility of “hurried children”, and the role of state support in a “universal” child care system. The recent Report of the task force on child care in Canada reviewed many of these issues, and used data on child care arrangements in a number of European countries compared to canada and the United States in much of its discussion. It is not surprising, given the history of models of child care which have come from Europe to North America, that North Americans are once again looking across the Atlantic for fresh ideas.

Abstract/Notes: In the modernization era, at the beginning of the twentieth-century, the preschool institutions’question became the core of the padagogic debate in the Italian society. A relevant contribution was given by the women’s emancipation process that brouhgt towards a modern concept of assistance, such as the overcoming of the idea of nursery schools only as places for safekeeping. It was underlined, in fact, their important educational function to childhood care. Exactly in that period, two educational experiences occurred, attracting politicians’ and pedagogists’ attention: the birth of Rosa Agazzi’s pre-school, expression of a mostly agricultural and peasant Italy, and the Maria Montessori’s “Casa dei bambini” (Children’s house), designed into an upgrading town planning scheme, in the degraded districts of Rome and Milan.
