The Path of Hong Kong Early Childhood Education Development: Investigating the Narratives of the Practitioners from 60's to 90's
To help students to appreciate the process of ECE development and to learn from the past, it is very essential to offer various resources to allow students to identify different perspectives and points of views. Nevertheless, it seems that the present teaching materials are mainly reports and critical journals and we have neglected the stories from our local ECE educators whom have made significant contributions to our profession. Their stories can convey moral and practical lessons about how to act and provide the basis for assessing the reasons for success or failure. This project aims at collecting the narratives of our local academics and practitioners about Hong Kong ECE development. Studying the ECE development is not just for knowing but also for thinking. The selected ECE practitioners are best represented in history. From reading the narratives, students can interpret the ECE development from different perspectives. From the collection of multiple stories, students can understand how policies or social events can impact practitioners in different ways. In fact, this is not just a collection of narratives but also a source of wisdom on which we must be inspired.

Parental Stress – A Comparison between Primary School Parents and Kindergarten Parents
The aim of this study is to investigate how parental stress may relate to social expectation of a good parent. Moreover, it is anticipated that these social expectations on parenting kindergarten children and primary school may vary due to the different school demands and children’s developmental characteristics. There are few data on comparing parenting stress between parents with preschool children and primary school children. The parent study aims to examine preschool and primary school parents’ perception of parenting stress.
