Potential directions of changes in the field of the pre-school education in the light of family expectations
Two research problems have been identified in the article: 1. Do parents of children between 25 and 5 years expect other types of pre-school support than pre-school institutions? 2. What are the main concerns and expectations of families regarding the quality of pre-school education in public kindergartens? These problems were the basis for analyzing the potential expectations of families concerning the forms and quality of support in raising preschoolers, based on the opinions of selected groups of Wrocław families (with children attending public kindergartens). This analysis was carried out in Wrocław in the years 2015 and 2016, based on quantitative survey conducted by survey technique and qualitative research — focused group interview. The results of these studies allow us to identify potential activities and directions for changes in pre-school education, which is the main purpose of the article.
