The Impacts of the Anti-COVID Measures Introduced in the Czech Republic and Spain in the Context of Preschool Education


The text presents a part of a broader research study carried out at the Faculty of Education, Palacký University Olomouc in cooperation with foreign partners. Its aim is to analyse and compare the impacts of the measures against the spread of COVID-19 on preschool education in selected European countries. This paper focuses on an initial comparative study involving the Czech Republic and Spain in order to analyse and compare how the anti-epidemic measures affect preschool education in the context of regional and social peculiarities in both countries. The research method is a qualitative text content analysis followed by open coding, formulation of analytical categories and their comparison according to the principles of comparative pedagogy. The data sources will be international and national documents relating to the research problem. Available data suggest that the impact of the anti-epidemic measures on preschool education differs both in the context of geographical locations and social differences. The benefit of this study is the body of data on addressing the impacts of the pandemic on preschool education in the Czech Republic and Spain including their comparison. Another benefit is a set of recommendations for the training of future teachers during the pandemic.
