The search for solutions to manage the quality of teaching and learning in preschools
When implementing any STEM curriculum, preschool teachers often encounter the following obstacles: (1) Difficulty in switching from traditional teaching to active, student centric teaching methods; (2) Lack of confidence in handling science, technology, engineering, and mathematics concepts, and not knowing how to bring these concepts to preschool children in a way appropriate to their age and cognitive capacity, and (3) Lack of high quality references relating to STEM education in preschools in local languages.
A good curriculum helps create an optimal learning experience for children, whilst ensuring stability and consistency in the quality of learning and teaching. Without a good curriculum, even the best teachers will struggle to achieve excellent results. Meanwhile, a poorly designed curriculum can have a negative impact on the quality of learning and teaching. This negative effect is especially evident when preschools and childcare groups employ relatively inexperienced and under qualified teachers.
Experts from international leading accreditation organisations such as NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and the HighScope Educational Research Foundation, recommended to evaluate preschool curricula based on a checklist of four criteria: (1) The consistency between theoretical and practical foundation, (2) The compatibility with local culture and community values, (3) The holistic coverage of all areas of children development, and (4) The flexibility in responding to children's need of development.
In order to manage the quality of teaching and learning, each country has its own regulations on the framework of the preschool education programme with the requirements for the outcomes to be achieved according to each age. On that basis, preschool educational institutions develop plans and develop programmes to suit the culture, local conditions, the school, the child's abilities and needs. Developing programmes and teaching plans with a STEM approach requires schools to invest a lot of valuable resources if they do not want to compromise on quality, but can become wasted when the number of children benefiting is not large enough.
