Resumen

Resumen:

El artículo reconstruye las líneas generales de la historia y evolución de la figura del coordinador pedagógico en Italia destacando su papel estratégico en la asistencia a la transformación de los servicios educativos para los niños pequeños en su transición de lugares de atención en contextos de educación y  cuidado. En Italia, los servicios educativos destinados a los niños de 3 meses a 3 años nacen durante los años 70 gracias a la ley de 1044, que establece la guardería. Los cambios sociales y económicos de los últimos treinta años han planteado la necesidad de nuevos servicios educativos organizados de diferente manera, con el fin de satisfacer las necesidades de las familias. Por ello se evidencia la necesidad de personal de coordinación capaz, por un lado de promover la integración entre los servicios y por otro de apoyar a los educadores en la realización de su tarea.

Palabras clave: Coordinador pedagógico, servicios educativos, la primera infancia, la calidad.

 

Abstract:

This article aims to reconstruct – in their essential aspects – the history and evolution of the professional profile of the Pedagogical Coordinator in Italy, highlighting her/his strategic role in accompanying Early Childhood Education and Care services transition from being places merely focused to ‘taking care’ of children, in real education and care services. In Italy, ECEC services for children from 3 months to 3 years of age born during the 70s, thanks to the Law n. 1044 that establishes nurseries (in Italian “nidi d’infanzia”). The social and economic changes of the last thirty years have increased the demand for new educational services, better and differently organized then before, in order to meet the needs of families. Therefore, it becomes evident the need for a type of Coordination that would be able, on the one hand, to promote the integration between the different ECEC services, and on the other to support educators in carrying out their tasks.

Keywords: Pedagogical Coordinator, education and care services, early childhood, quality.
