Current Response and Future of Preschool Education in China
Pusan National University, Pusan, South Korea
Abstract: At this stage, the development of early childhood education provides a glimpse of the future cultural quality of Chinese people. This paper finds from previous research findings that the political system, multi-ethnicity, multiculturalism, and multi-regionalism all have different effects on education due to China’s unique national conditions. Before China’s reform and opening up, the term “preschool education” did not exist at all. Until the 1990s, the term “life is based on the early education” was formed. Preschool education was seen as the beginning of lifelong learning, and people’s expectations and demands for kindergartens were no longer just “childcare” or “childcare services” but quality preschool education for children. With the emergence of hot mama, parents are educating their young children with a lot of classical literature. In an era of globalization, what was once considered “corrupt and outdated” is being actively used by many Chinese parents to educate their children, due to the deep-rooted Chinese culture and the high cultural quality that comes from classical literature education.
