Implicit Cultural Beliefs and Practices in Approaches to Early Childhood Education and Care
AUTHOR : Joseph Tobin
INFORMATION : page. 3~22 / 2011 Vol.5 No.1
Countries have implicit cultural beliefs and practices about early childhood education
which they tend to undervalue and which, as a result, are endangered. The Preschool
in Three Cultures Revisited study includes examples of such implicit cultural beliefs
and practices in Chinese, Japanese, and US preschools. The paper argues that early
childhood practitioners, policy makers, and scholars should give greater value to
these cultural beliefs and practices and think of them as national treasures and as endangered
educational ecology which it is our responsibility to protect and pass on to
the next generation.
