Project Details

A pilot study on the instruments for assessing the Effective Provisions of Pre-school Education under Cultural and Social impacts (EPPECS-P)

This pilot has three broad aims. First, we will test the ecological validity of various instruments in Hing Kong and Shenzhen settings as most of them are developed for overseas contexts. Second, we will explore the individual differences of children between Hong KOng and Shenzhen. Third, we would explore the extent of variations of ECE practices between Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Although the ethnic and national background of Hong Kong is similar to that of its neighbouring cities, its colonial history and metropolitan characteristics affect the pedagogy and practices in ECE settings. The comparison of ECE in competing cities in China will reveal their diversities in teaching and learning practices and the implications of such diversities from regional, national and international perspectives.
