Professional Development Tool for Improving Quality of Practices in Kindergarten



Professional Development Tool for Improving Quality of Practices in Kindergarten illustrates each of the 85 indicators of quality in the ISSA Principles of Quality Pedagogy. It shows how early childhood educators advance and move on a continuum from inadequate practice, to a good start, to quality practice and then into transformational practice. Concrete examples of the different kinds of action educators may take at different levels of practice are given for each indicator of quality, in a continuum format. The tool was designed to foster a dialogue on quality when different perspectives can be presented and reflected upon.
The examples are meant to be changed based on the specific and diverse contexts that educators work in, and not as fixed indicators.
