Fremdbetreuung von Kindern unter drei Jahren. Eine by Annika Pogner

By Annika Pogner

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Kindergarten, Vorschule, frühkindl. Erziehung, notice: 1,0, Universität Duisburg-Essen (Erziehungswissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Schriftliche Hausarbeit im Rahmen der ersten Staatsprüfung, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem Thema der Fremdbetreuung von Kindern unter drei Jahren. In Frankreich und diversen anderen Ländern ist die frühzeitige Betreuung von Kindern unter drei Jahren außerhalb des familiären Umfeldes seit Jahren üblich, in Deutschland scheinen stetig steigende Fremdbetreuungsquoten sich einem ähnlichen development anzuschließen. Das Thema der Fremdbetreuung in der frühen Kindheit ist hierzulande jedoch mit emotionaler Ambivalenz verbunden und in der Gesellschaft daher oft umstritten und debattiert.

Der Untertitel dieser Arbeit „Eine pädagogische Auseinandersetzung mit einer gesellschaftlichen Forderung“ zeigt die Ausrichtung des Themas der Fremdbetreuung auf die bestehende gesellschaftliche Debatte zwischen der Forderung nach Emanzipation durch einen frühen Berufswiedereinstieg der Frau und Kritikern, die dadurch das Kindeswohl gefährdet sehen. Es soll in der vorliegenden Arbeit vor allem die Kontroverse zwischen der zunehmenden Forderung eines frühen Berufswiedereinstiegs der Mutter und dem Wohl des Kindes aus pädagogischer Perspektive behandelt werden. Ein früher Berufswiedereinstieg der Mutter führt quickly immer zwangsläufig zu einer frühen Fremdbetreuung.

Es sollen Entscheidungskriterien aufgezeigt werden, die ausschlaggebend für die Entscheidung zwischen Berufstätigkeit und heimischer Kinderbetreuung sein können.

Accountability: Qualitätsmanagement in Hamburger by Barbara Junne

By Barbara Junne

Barbara Junne befasst sich mit der Frage, wie
Qualitätsmanagement in Hamburger Kitas als eine gesellschaftlich konstruierte
Praktik entsteht, die die gegenseitige Rechenschaftslegung, d.h.
Accountability, befördert. Vor diesem Hintergrund kann Qualitätsmanagement eben
nicht als objektives device betrachtet werden. Es erscheint vielmehr als
ein Vehikel für unterschiedliche Interessen, Sinn- und Bedeutungszuschreibungen
der am Diskurs beteiligten Akteure, die sich wiederum über die Zeit verändern.
Die Gestaltung von Qualitätsverfahren ist somit auf die Mitgestaltung der lokal
handelnden Akteure und deren permanente Rekonstruktion von Qualität angewiesen.
