Curricula for Early Childhood in Europe - differences and common ground
The CARE consortium met in Oxford, March 24 to 25, to address the different curricula for early childhood that exist in Europe and try to identify the common ground within cultural variation.
Presentations on 13 countries curricula or curriculum guidelines were presented and discussed, including invited external experts from non-participating countries (i.e., France and Estonia).
On March 23 and 26, work meetings on specific studies within CARE were conducted as well as a plenary meeting of CARE partners.
Kathy Sylva discusses the benefits and challenges of contrasting the different curricular approaches across Europe, and describes the work developed during the CARE March 2014 expert meeting in Oxford.
