VASCONCELOS, Kelly Rocha de Matos  and  KUHLMANN JUNIOR, Moysés. Early Childhood Education and women in Jornal do Comércio: Manaus in the 1970s. Cad. Hist. Educ. [online]. 2022, vol.21, e131.  Epub Sep 13, 2022. ISSN 1982-7806.

The article explores the publication of news about the education of children aged 0 to 7 years old in Jornal do Comércio of Amazonas in the 1970s. It takes a social and cultural history perspective and situates education within the context of social relations. Before approaching the news pieces, the text contextualizes Early Childhood Education in the period, as well as the researched newspaper. We selected eight articles from the Caderno Feminino and the column Mulher on the following topics: daycare centers and kindergarten policies; the importance of toys, play activities and socialization for child development; the transition from preschool to elementary school, and school vacation. It is concluded that, in the context of the expansion of preschool education at the time, the newspaper favored early childhood education discussions in women's sections, with no clear distinction between domestic and public spaces.
