AUTHOR : Greg Tabios Pawilen,Manabu Sumida

INFORMATION : page. 139~162 / 2007 Vol.1 No.1


This study discusses the process of developing an indigenous science curriculum for kindergarten in the Philippines. It is inspired by a vision to uti - lize the rich experience and indigenous knowledge of the people to enhance and enrich the science curriculum for the kindergarten level. This study aims to make the kindergarten science curriculum more relevant and responsive to the daily-life culture of the learners and to make culture a part of science. In this paper, important data from the socio-cultural systems of selected commu - nities are analyzed and discussed in order to determine the context in which the curriculum is situated. Likewise, the responses of the learners, perceptions of teachers and community folks, and the government documents on develop - ing indigenous curriculum were analyzed and presented to develop an indige - nous science curriculum for kindergarten.
