Abstract:

The quality of education is directly linked both to the socio-emotional development and balance of infants and to their later academic career. The curriculum is today considered an organized tool in the hands of the teacher, the purpose of which is to contribute in a scientific and thorough way to the holistic development of infants. The modern school environment should be organized based on scientific and pedagogical criteria, always with a view to satisfying the personal and educational needs of children. The purpose of this research was to investigate the views of General and Special Education teachers on the quality of the meals and sleep in Greek Kindergartens. The results of the research showed that teachers consider it very important during the snack-meal that all the children sit at the same table and talk to each other, while regarding to sleep the space should help relax the children and provide employment for children who do not sleep. Finally, it emerged that the quality of snack-meal and sleep is affected by the number of students per class, as well as by the geographical area where the Kindergarten is located.
