    2. How are children prepared for school? What areas of development does Italy concentrate on?
      1. Teachers emphasise helping children understand perceptions, how to express their thoughts and feelings, and how to master their capabilities in achieving identity, autonomy, and skills, and therefore guidance in making decisions regarding instruction and curriculum. The areas heavily focused on are social, emotional and personal development. (Walden University. Patricia McDonald: 2008: Page 130)
