In this study we tried to clarify the relation between an integrated music program and development of musical talents in children. The study was conducted for 60 children - who are 5 years old - selected from 2 kindergartens located in J city, Jeollabukdo, where Amadeus program is taught. We analyzed the actual musical contents and methods provided for the children and conducted pre and post-experiment tests to identify what kind of effects Amadeus program has on children. As a study method, we used PMMA(The Primary of music Audation) which has a capacity to objectively measure the improvement level of each individual. Study results are as follows: First, the teaching contents and methods in Amadeus program were analyzed. Second, the musical talents in children were found improved after the experiment, and accordingly the program was also deemed to have proved its effectiveness. And finally, the rhythmic senses in children also improved after the experiment, which confirms positive effects of the program.

Korean Journal of Childcare and Education, volume 5, issue 1, 2009, Pages 41~57
This study investigated the teaching practice of students attending a three-year early childhood education course in K City, Gyeonggi Province, as well as the educational environments of 72 kindergartens and child care centers where they received field training and which were located in Gangseo-gu, Seoul, Incheon Metropolitan City, Bucheon, and Ilsan. After four weeks of teaching practice, those prospective teachers were surveyed for their objective opinions and current state regarding the practice guidance for students, teachers' working hours and wages, and female dominance in number among early childhood educators and heads of early childhood education institutions. Those data were collected to understand the operations of early childhood education institutions and the current teaching practice. According to the analysis results, the students of the early childhood education major said the four-week teaching practice was very helpful for them to understand the field and thus had positive receptions of it. Most of the prospective teachers felt the heaviest burden and experienced the biggest shortcomings in practical skills such as music, art, and hand play during class. They also felt a partial need for male counterparts. Those findings will help prospective teachers understand the field further before going out on the field and the teaching bodies have specific ideas about what kind of guidance is provided by kindergartens or child care centers. In addition, they will hopefully serve as basic data to form organic connections between the educational institutions and the field to produce more talented early childhood education teachers.

An Analysis of Korean Domestic Research Trend in English Education and Bi- lingualism of Young Children
Ahn, Eun-Suk ; Kim, Yeon-Ha ;
Korean Journal of Childcare and Education, volume 5, issue 1, 2009, Pages 81~101
This study analyzed a total of 37 studies about bi-lingulism and English education as a foreign language published in 8 academic journals in early childhood education or child development fields. Research topics, participants, methods, and variables in the studies were categorized and descriptively analyzed. The research findings which had been statistically investigated were also summarized. The most frequently studied research topics were children's development and English education program exposure, actual conditions of English education in preschool settings and effectiveness of specific English programs for preschool children. However, children's home characteristics were seldom included as research variables and no research investigated so called English preschools. Several studies reported that bi-lingual children may have different language development paths from mono-lingual children but they eventually have comparable language abilities to mono-lingual children. Also some studies reported that, when learning English as a foreign language in school settings, older children can handle more information regarding English than younger children, resulting in better outcomes of older children. Exposure to two languages in early childhood seems to contribute to young children's meta linguistic awareness but the long term effect of English education in early childhood should be further studied. Several English education programs for preschool settings were developed and the effectiveness were investigated. Even though most of them reported that their programs were effective to children's English ability or interests, the results should be carefully interpreted because their research designs and methods were not rigorous.
