Abstract

Objective: The current study aimed to identify the most important Standards of the National Framework for Academic Qualifications (SNFAQ) in the Early Childhood Stage in Jordan. Methods: The study adopted a descriptive approach to achieve the aim of the study. Further, established a questionnaire for the degree of availability of the criteria for the SNFAQ in early childhood in Jordan. As the final form, the questionnaire consisted of three dimensions and (65) items. The current study sample consisted of 135 kindergarten teachers in the private and public sectors in Amman city. Results: The study results showed that the degree of availability of the SNFAQ in early childhood curricula in Jordan came with a medium degree, with a mean (2.82) and a standard deviation (0.61). Moreover, they attributed no statistically significant differences in the degree of availability of the SNFAQ in the early childhood stage in Jordan to kindergarten type and experience. Furthermore, statistically significant differences in the degree of availability of the SNFAQ in Early Childhood in Jordan due to academic qualification favor those with postgraduate qualifications. Finally, a set of recommendations were made in light of the results of the study, including Increasing the interest of officials in the Ministry of Education, including leaders of kindergartens, about the importance of the SNFAQ, identifying an executive body to follow up on the inclusion of standards, and conducting studies similar to the current research on kindergarten departments in Jordanian universities.
