Physical education in Early Childhood Education and the basic training curriculum

Cristiane Guimarães de Lacerda Martha Benevides da Costa About the authors

This research is an analysis of the curriculum of physical education for teachers, at a state university of Bahia, with regard to the specific characteristics for future performance in kindergarten. This study aimed to identify whether the current curriculum of this course provides grants for the performance of future teachers in schools for children's education. It was a documental research with dialectical approach. The analysis of the curriculum found general aspects related to a conscious activity in kindergarten. However, there are few specific citations to kindergarten and they have conflicting approaches, and an overlap of content between the disciplines.
