MUSEUM AND GALLERY EDUCATION AND ITS APLICATION IN THE CONTEXT OF PRE-PRIMARY EDUCATION
Languages of publication
The presented article deals with the issue of cooperation among museum and gallery institutions and pre-primary education. Its content is structured into a theoretical and a research part that are closely connected. In the theoretical part, there is an analysis of the curriculum of pre-primary education and an analysis of the possibility of cooperation among the pre-primary schools and the museum institutions with regard to the (educational) needs and interests of the child visitor. This connection is then specified in the chapter devoted to the phenomenon of the children’s museum, set especially in the European context. In the theoretical part, we also checked the offer of Slovak museums and galleries intended for pre-school children (performances, workshops, interactive exhibitions). The research part of the article, based on interviews with teachers and directors of nursery schools, examines not only the possibilities of cooperation between the pre-primary school and museums and galleries, but also the specific needs and requirements of pre-primary practice towards these institutions in order to fulfil their educational potential to the fullest possible extent.
