La qualità dei servizi per l'infanzia: educazione partecipata e corresponsabilità scuola-famiglia
The European Union has already devoted its attention to the reality of early childhood for years and through the European Commission Network on Childcare (ECNC) had developed recommendations and documents that stress the importance of preschool education, seen as a key tool for a good cultural, cognitive, physical and emotional development of children, and at the same time as a necessary condition for guaranteeing equal opportunities among citizens right from the start (Silva, Freschi & Caselli, 2018). The European pillar of social rights' (2017) establishes that all children have the right to education and care in early childhood at sustainable costs and of good quality.
With the Legislative Decree n. 65/2017 Italian children's education finds itself re-evaluating the educational and scholastic child path, intended as an essential prerequisite for promoting unitary and harmonious development, aiming to highlight the importance of careful planning of educational and didactic action at nursery. Moreover, today it is right to consider the parent as a partner in the educational and growth planning of the child, right from the nursery school. This can finally open the door to an idea of participatory and co-responsible education between the public of the institution and the private of the family, finalizing the centers for children (0-3 years) to the quality of the educational service designed in an eminently pedagogical perspective.
