BeoKiz – Observation and Documentation in Day-Care Centres: Child-Centred and Holistic
"BeoKiz" is a project that we are implementing in cooperation with the Institut für Fortbildung Forschung & Entwicklung e.V. on behalf of the Berlin Senate Department for Education, Youth and Family in the period from August 2020 to December 2022.
Institute for Advanced Training Research & Development e.V.
The aim of the project is to further develop or supplement the procedures already used in Berlin day care centres for language assessment and for observing and documenting children's development. Accordingly, the project focuses on the development of a procedure that makes the observation process child-centred, holistic and integrated into everyday life for the educational staff.
The resulting BeoKiz procedure guides the educational staff through the three phases of the observation and documentation process in a way that is integrated into everyday life: observation – evaluation – derivation. This enables the professionals to deal with the observation process in a resource-conserving and strength-oriented way.
