Children and Parents with a Migration Background – intercultural challenges in educational work at day-care centres

One-third of the children in Germany between the ages of under one year to five years have a migration background. Due to this fact, the integration of families and children is playing an increasingly important role in practical education at day-care centres.

Gerhard Hain, Managing Partner and a trained educator as well as an academically qualified teacher, in cooperation with Susanne Treiber, an employee at ti communication, has developed a seminar for day-care teachers in Germany. In addition to introducing a variety of cultural concepts, the seminar focuses on specific situations in the respective day-care centre.

Special attention is given to work with parents. The demands of parents with migration backgrounds toward their children continually stand in contrast to educational concepts developed in Germany. Different learning and educational goals, hierarchical family relationships, varying ideas about school education at the pre-school stage and a variety of differentiated gender roles are only a few of the points that play a role in this context.

Employees in day-care centres and parents often try to put on their “adult cultural glasses” and, based on them, formulate culture-specific educational goals.

Few European countries are as similar as Denmark and Sweden. But while the states are becoming more economically integrated, their populations remain divided, writes a Stockholm-based Danish political scientist. Excerpts.

Drude Dahlerup

”Do you know that everything that is not forbidden in Sweden, is mandatory?” This is a joke that has been circulating in the corridors of the Danish political scene for years. Naturally, everyone knew that it wasn’t true, but it got a lot of laughs. It was part of our low-key, standard teasing between neighbours.
