Social Management in Early Education and Care

Although child care facilities provide the elementary foundation for a successful educational career, the learning conditions at these facilities can still be improved. The path to improvement begins with the training of kindergarten teachers. The part-time bachelor's program is the first university degree program in Austria for trained kindergarten teachers with professional and management experience. The degree program focuses on how you can develop educational partnerships with families, team leadership and cooperation with education partners and how to optimally organize your facility.

    Before the studies

    You are a trained kindergarten teacher with professional and management experience. Personally, you want to critically reflect on what you have learned in your previous education and what you experience professionally every day and combine this with scientific findings. In this way you seek to expand your scope of action. What you already do now, you will in future also be able to justify based on established theory or do differently for good reason. In your job you recognize a complex, interwoven relationship between children, families, staff and education partners. As director, you are open to input in order to act even more professionally and efficiently so that your child care facility is well organized, leaving you enough time for what is truly important: the education of our children.

    Why you should study with us

    During the studies

    We maintain close cooperation with elementary educational institutions, elementary educational training centers and universities with which we regularly exchange knowledge and experience. The bachelor's degree program was developed in collaboration with experts from the Universities of Vienna and Innsbruck, the Bundesbildungsanstalt für Elementarpädagogik Klagenfurt, employees of course-providing bodies, the early education and care platform EduCare and other experts from the field of early education and care and its related disciplines. The first conference for directors and responsible bodies for children's education and child care facilities in Austria took place at FH Campus Wien. Currently there are very few university professorships for early education and care in Austria The head of our degree program is herself a university qualified teacher. Nina Hover-Reisner most recently taught and researched topics in early education and care at the Department of Education at the University of Vienna. Before that, she worked for many years in early education and care institutions. Thus she combines to a high degree scientific expertise with practical experience.

    Although child care facilities provide the elementary foundation for a successful educational career, the learning conditions at these facilities can still be improved. The path to improvement begins with the training of kindergarten teachers. In the vast majority of European countries a university education is the norm. Only in Austria is this not the case. At a time in which the growing need for quality child care facilities is being discussed and at the same time too few people want to work in early education and care, it is more important than ever to promote the development of the profession into an academic field.
    FH Campus Wien is the first university to offer a degree program for trained kindergarten teachers with professional and management experience. The degree program focuses not only on the education of the children according to established theories, but on how you can develop educational partnerships with families, team leadership and cooperation with education partners and how to optimally organize your facility.

    The degree program focuses on three core skills: early education and care in different settings, development and professionalization of the occupational field and organization and management.

    • You will learn about the different settings for early education and care as well as the management of child day care facilities.
    • In order to develop and professionalize your occupational field, you will expand your didactic and pedagogical skills and learn scientific methods and how to apply them in your professional field. You will write two bachelor's theses on topics you choose according to your professional focus.
    • In the area of "organization and management" you will learn more about personnel management tools, legal frameworks, basic principles of business administration and accounting, the particularities of managing non-profit organizations, financial planning, controlling and reporting, as well as quality management and change management skills.
    • During the course of the degree program you will examine and reflect upon your own role as a manager in different contexts. The degree program takes an interdisciplinary approach towards the subjects of communication and conflict management.

    Lector: Nicol Gruber, MA BSc

    1 SWS   2 ECTS

    Lecture contents

    The course starts with the concept of "economics" in order to work from there to everyday-oriented content for the students: The course begins with a first block, which deals with economic aspects of childcare. The theories and concepts are transferred to childcare in alternating phases of the treatment of theory and practice.
    In a second block, the focus is on social policy. Here basic terms are clarified and the relation to institutional childcare is worked out. In a distance phase, housework is worked out in groups.
    In the last block, concepts are discussed and the advantages and disadvantages of economic evaluation will be regarded in detail, especially focussing on instituional childcare.

    Assessment methods

    Final exam
    Engagement, group work, written test

    Teaching methods

    The basic method of the course is the teaching of the course content based on an interplay between theoretical content and its application to practice. The course concept provides for a subsequent practice block for each theory block, which transfers the learned theories and concept to the service of institutional childcare. Interactive elements to consolidate the teaching content complement this concept.

    Lecture contents

    The course begins with a look at your own learning process in order to work out what prerequisites are required to stimulate learning processes. In addition to beneficial learning prerequisites, tools are also required to assess development. In the course, you will learn about theories and a method of observation that enable you to think about development and development needs as well as to understand the importance of the interaction processes between child and educator.
    For the course, observations of children in their interaction with the pedagogue and other children are to be written using the “Work Discussion” method developed in London. Together, the protocols are used to work out how it can be understood, why children act the way they do, and the specific meaning of the action or intervention of the educator. On the basis of such a reflective assessment of the child's behavior and inner experience, the child can subsequently be supported in its development and educational processes can be stimulated.

    Assessment methods

    Continuous assessment
    Timely writing of a "Work Discussion" protocol and its interpretation in the sense of the knowledge learned in the course as a thesis. Dedicated participation in the work processes in the course.

    Teaching methods

    - Lecture on developmental theories,
    - Creation of work discussion protocols, reading of texts on various developmental theories and observation methods

    Lecture contents

    The course aims to develop a understanding of what a "sociology of early childhood and family" deals with and from which theoretical or discipline-specific perspectives this field can be "illuminated". In doing so, the complexity of the connections between social framework conditions, time-typical problem interpretations, generation-specific educational mentalities and the subjective forms of processing and reactions of children, parents, but also of educators is worked on in a theoretical manner and reflected with a view to pedagogical practice. The aim is to find out how this “sociological view” opens up (new) perspectives for working with children and parents or for educational practice.

    New educational concepts ILV

    Lector: Raphaela Hanke, BA

    1 SWS   2 ECTS

    Lecture contents

    - Conceptual clarification of the term “pedagogical concept” in the context that theories and action concepts are often used interchangeably in elementary education and that elementary education conceptual research is still in its infancy.
    - Concepts of action can reduce the complexity of pedagogical practice, provide certainty, and resolve elementary educationareas of tension in rudimentary ways, because they are application-oriented and provide a direction.
    - Pedagogical guiding ideas and educational principles are programmatically condensed in early childhood education action plans. Based on a specific image of the child, they identify educational goals and formulate consequences for the design of pedagogical practice.
    - In the context of pedagogical professionalism, it is necessary to understand pedagogical concepts as practical constructs and to constantly reflect on them as such. Pedagogical concepts are always products of a current discourse on education, and they legitimise pedagogical action. In this respect, it is highly significant to examine pedagogical concepts of action with a critical and self-reflexive view of subject constructions and dogmatism.

    Transitions and continuity in educational pathways SE

    Lector: Mag.a Dr.in Maria Fürstaller

    1.5 SWS   3 ECTS

    Lecture contents

    Transitions or transitions represent significant biographical phases in the curriculum vitae. In the elementary pedagogical context, the transition from family to non-family care, from day nursery to kindergarten and from kindergarten to primary school is of particular interest. The courses deal with the specific challenges associated with these three transitions. The main focus of the course is on psychoanalytical-pedagogical approaches to transitions.
    - In connection with this, an overview of the various methodological and theoretical approaches to transitional research is developed in order to be able to work out the central findings on the question of the importance of transitions for early development and educational processes.
    - A deepening takes place through the examination of exemplary educational biographies and various factors that can influence the course of transitions (e.g. structural aspects of educational institutions, family-cultural aspects, relationship biographies, etc.).
    - In the course students get to know different models of transition support.

    Lecture contents

    Research shows the connection between health and, above all, the psychological stress experienced by the educational specialists in daycare centers (cf. Viernieckel, Voss 2012). The mental stress is related to the primary task of accompanying, educating and supporting the children and their families in the elementary education facility. The institutional challenges exist at all levels - specialist, management, organization and should be able to be recognized and reflected on with regard to mental health on the one hand. In this sense, the course takes a look at the institutional structures based on case material from one's own institution, so that the students are enabled on the one hand to do justice to the primary task of the institution and, on the other hand, preventively in terms of their (own) mental health (and those of employees) to take effect.
