Abstract/Notes: The long history of Montessori education in India dates to 1915, and it was expanded through Maria and Mario Montessori's work in India between 1939 to 1946 and 1947 to 1949. The article characterizes a century of Montessori education in India as a series of adapted, competing, and contested framings with key disputes over Montessori education's intended purpose, audience, and how much it could be adapted. First, from 1915 to 1939, Montessori education was connected to the Indian independence movement as nation-building education, but it was eclipsed by a parallel rise of elite, private Montessori schools, a framing reinforced by Maria Montessori's insistence on fidelity to her method. Starting in the 1950s, other Indian educators adapted Montessori for poor children, an emphasis that continues today with government and foundation-funded schools. Finally, in the last thirty years, India's new middle class has driven demand for early childhood education, leading to branded Montessori franchises, some bearing little resemblance to Montessori's original pedagogy.

Abstract/Notes: This article describes in some detail the Indian National Education Policy of 1986 which proposes a multifaceted approach to the training of personnel working with preschool children and their families. The magnitude of the challenges for current and training staff is discussed and some innovative programs for young children are presented in detail. Consideration is given to the nature of the training required to put these programs into practice in a country as diverse as India. There are many different programs designed to enable staff, many of whom have received only short periods of training, to execute the content based on basic child development knowledge. In all program modalities, the emphasis is on an integral approach that includes educational activity in health care, and if necessary a food supplement if necessary. Each type of program is designed to meet a specific need. In some projects, such as Anganwadi and Crèches Mobiles, basic staff training is supervised and extended by formally trained project managers, whose task is to engage staff in on-the-job training, at the same time. as their knowledge and understanding grows. This article shows how the service manages to employ staff from extremely diverse backgrounds and educational backgrounds. [Cet article décrit de façon assez détaillée la Politique Educative Nationale Indienne de 1986 qui propose une approche à multiples facettes de la formation du personnel travaillant avec les enfants d’âge préscolaire et leurs familles. On discute de l’ampleur des défis relatifs au personnel en fonction et en formation et on présente en détail quelques programmes innovateurs pour jeunes enfants. On considère la nature de la formation nécessaire pour la mise en pratique de ces programmes dans un pays aussi vaste divers que l’Inde. Il existe beaucoup de programmes différents concus pour permettre aux personnels, dont beaucoup n’ont reçu que de courtes périodes de formation, d’en exécuter le contenu à partir de connaissances de base du développement de l’enfant. Dans toutes les modalités de programme, l’accent porté sur une approche intégrale qui englobe l’activité éducative dans les soins d’ordre sanitaire, et au besoin un supplément alimentaire si nécessaire. Chaque type de programme est élaboré pour répondre à un besoin spécifique. Dans certains projets, comme ceux d’Anganwadi et des Crèches Mobiles, la formation de base du personnel est supervisée et étendue par des responsables de projet officiellement formés, dont la tâche consiste à engager le personnel dans une formation en cours d’emploi, au fur et à mesure que leurs connaissances et leur compréhension se développent. Cet article montre comment le service arrive à employer des personnels dont l’origine et l’expérience éducative sont extrêmement diverses. / Este artículo describe con basante detalles la Política Educativa Nacional de la India en 1986 que propone enfoques con múltiplos aspectos al problema de la formación del personal trabajando con niños de edad preescolar y sus familias.
