Title „Learning and working in Italian day nurseries“
Marketing Text The background and motivation of our project is a discussion caused by Ursula von der Leyen, the federal minister of family affairs, in 2007. She was talking about the expansion of day nurseries in Germany until the year 2013. KLAX-pedagogy is standing for lifelong learning. To teach our employees the day nursery pedagogy in an optimal way, we were doing a study trip to Florence in the context of our further education to become a KLAX-pedagogue and its day nursery specialisation.
Description The aim of the project was it to make an educational journey with our pedagogues to Florence. The participants got to know the work in Italian day nurseries and they’ve got experience in material arrangement and room arrangement. Furthermore we wanted the pedagogues to gain an insight into the practical and pedagogical work in Italy. It was important for us to take a look at the multifaceted ideas and helpful suggestions we could find in the Italien day nurseries. Reflection was also an important part of the program as well as an active participation in the every day life of the day nurseries.
Target group The participants of the study trip to Florence are state-recognized childcare workers, who have a qualification as pedagogues for day nurseries.
Result The results are partially used in our KLAX-day nurseries. The intense collaboration between German and Italian pedagogues did not only enhance the pedagogical expertise but also the social competence and language skills of the employees. The study trip is part of an European exchange program, further study trips are planned.
