Early Childhood Education in the USA, Russia and Finland

This investigation examines changes in teachers’ views of the needs of children in early childhood education (ECE) context in the USA, Russia, and Finland over the past two decades. In addition, it focuses on the teachers’ views about their role  in  the  process  of  child-rearing  within  formal  ECE  institutions. Moreover,  the primary purpose  of documenting teachers’  views  on  children’s needs, professional work, and centre-based child care, between  these  societal contexts from 1991 and 2011, is to better understand points of comparative change.
