It is regulated by the children’s feed-back Accurate methodological awareness, able to overcome both single, spontaneous interventions and the severity of an action only based on method The main object is children’ s advantage, needs and results.

25 Milano CENTRAL DIRECTION FAMILY, SCHOOL AND SOCIAL POLICIES – European Project Office January STATUS Workers in the educational and teaching fields are differently respected and considered Altough they have nowadays a very high level of education, pre- school teachers still have a lower status if compared with other kind of teachers Until recently, their level of education and qualification was actually lower, whereas today an university degree is required. It didn’t help to raise their profile: a long-lasting process is required. There is still a difference between educators for 0-3 and teachers 0-6 children, which is being gradually removed. In Milan’s services it is used the word educator only.
