Towards a pedagogy of nursery education: The analytical role of perception


Odigie Veronica

The apparent lack of foresight to establish a philosophical base nursery education in Nigeria had many implications both for the theory and practice of nursery education in Nigeria. The major thrust of this research was to critically examine these defects and suggest possible remedies. The National Policy on Education (2014) did not address the issues of the child and curriculum. As a result of which there was an absence of logic in the teaching subjects in the curriculum of the nursery school. The researcher proposed remedies for the above defects by trying to advance a pedagogy of nursery education. To this effect she postulated frame of reference in which the following issues were addressed.
  1. The need to include environmental perception in the curriculum of nursery education.
  2. The need to establish logic in the teaching of writing before reading.
  3. The need for the organic method of teaching in nursery schools.
