DUQUE, Letícia de Souza  and  MOREIRA, Ana Rosa Costa Picanço. Caring-educating in day care: itineraries through the work of Anped, Grupeci e BDTD. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2020, vol.43, n.3, e37472. ISSN 1981-2582.

The National Curriculum Guidelines for Early Childhood Education provide that early childhood centers and preschools should care for and educate infants and children. The purpose of this article is to discuss studies on concepts and practices in child care. The survey was carried out between 2007 and 2018 in the archives of the Brazilian Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations and in the Annals of the Meetings of the National Association of Graduate Studies and Research in Education and the Seminar of Research Groups on Children and Childhood. The analysis shows an increase in the number of research on the subject, but there is a reduced number of studies produced. It demarcates that although the discussion on the dichotomy between the actions of care and education seems overcome in the theoretical field and in the legislation, it is perceived by the early childhood education school teachers in a segmented way. In this sense, the works point to the need to keep the topic under discussion in the initial and continuing teacher training.
