STANDARDS OF THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR THE PRESCHOOL TEACHERS
UNICEF supporting the Institute of the Development of Education
UNICEF has supported the Institute of the Development of Education for the development of the document “Standards for the professional development of preschool teachers”. The document was drafted by a group of experts in Early Childhood Education and Care, teachers, preschool directors and other specialists from the Institute of the Development of Education and Ministry of Education Sport and Youth. The main goal of this document is to guide the preschool teachers on what they should know, demonstrate and apply while working with children but also on how to use the standards in order to assess their performance, their strengths and needs for further professional development. The document is composed by 10 standards that are related: to collaboration, engagement, methodologies, children’s achievement, respect for the diversity, protection and health, environment, and evaluation.
