TURINA, Keli Fernanda Rucco  e  OLIVEIRA, Marcus Aurelio Taborda de. Educando a sensibilidade: a puericultura como alicerce da moral e do trabalho na Escola Maternal da Sociedade de Socorro aos Necessitados (Curitiba, 1928-1944). Rev. Diálogo Educ. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.34, pp.863-884. ISSN 1981-416X.

This work is the result of a research that explores some assumptions of childcare as a curriculum prescription for the Maternal School of the Sociedade de Socorro aos Necessitados (SSN), created in Curitiba, in 1928. Among all the activities provided by the creators of that child care institution, the Maternal School characterized by the concern to provide schooling to childhood there assisted, covering the ages of 0 to 12 years in three different phases: creche, the kinder garden and the home studies. In this institution, childcare and labour earned relief, though under other names they were also present in the previous actions of SSN. Understood these three dimensions of formation as intrinsically linked to the education of the body and sensitivities, we consider the scatter of childcare, moral and labour was based on the disqualification of most of the population not only local, but all around Brazil, that still lacks a “clash of civility”. This should internalize the rules taught to them, for the training on sanitized, educated and moralized individuals, under the epithet of “citizens”, regardless of the material conditions that determine their condition of poverty and abandonment. Based on the sources analyzed, it is observed that under the perspective adopted by the childcare in the actions of the Maternal School were based on scientific principles scattered mostly in Congress, among other places of great circulation of ideas. These ideas, in turn, made up the proposals from other institutions and based the speeches of doctors, lawyers, politicians, journalists, among many other professionals who considered these principles as fundamental in the education of the population. Thus, it is mobilized documents of varied nature, such as those emanated from inside the SSN (minutes, correspondence, reports and programs), plus the daily press and the production of intellectuals linked to the causes of education and poor child care. In the documentation we catch echoes of a founding moment of the curriculum, its prescription, noting how the childcare was linked to moral in an attempt to develop a sensitivity accustomed to the world of work. This world, in turn, was justified by rhetoric of a religious, caring and charitable nature to affirm in the children’s hearts and minds the place of every one in that world.
