Abstract

The practice of pedagogical documentation in the field of early childhood education and care in Italy has a long and significant tradition, starting in 1991 up to the most recent documents. The pandemic emergency and recent lockdowns in Italy are an invita-tionto focus attention on this theme for two main reasons: the documentation practice is indicated as functional to inclusive pro-cesses; the documenting practices of teachers and educators are changing. This paper discusses the results emerging from an ex-plorative study carried out on the experience of distance education during the lockdown in Italy in the context of 0-6 years early child-hood education and care services collecting the opinion of 412 teachers, educators and coordinators through a questionnaire.In particular, the focus of this study will be on documentation prac-tices through a descriptive analysis of closed answers and a content analysis of open questions. This allows to make the resilient beauty of LEAD visible.
