|Samenvatting||The nature of pre-school education – what it is, what it ‘looks like’, what it is meant to ‘do’, and what role the government (especially the Ministry of Education) plays in promoting it – is one of the vexing problems facing today’s educators. The relationship between pre-school and primary education is particularly problematic. Thus, the dilemma: to ease the transition from pre-school to primary school, do we formalise the informal in order to give children the best possible start in an increasingly competitive academic world, or do we informalise the formal, reversing the growing rigid and achievement-oriented nature of early primary education?|
