The words of the chief executive

    Good picture book, should be if the texture of the taste of life in general, can touch our hearts, let us feel a kind of interest, a kind of interest. You will want to read it, you will be it to stir the hearts of a certain string. Picture book can not simply be a combination of graphs and text, and even can not be said to be used to learn language tools, this is not its goal.
    Picture book is not a purpose, it seems to me as Zhuangzi said "useless use of the big use." For children, it is used to cultivate the child's life texture of things. I would like to know about children's development, children's education will probably agree that the picture book is the most suitable for children to read a variety of literature.
    As a pioneer of picture book publishing, we spent more effort in promoting early childhood reading than in publishing. We advocate parent-child read, advocate parents to accompany children to read together. The introduction of the world classic books, so that our children and the world, expand reading horizons. Founder of "letter art picture book award", to cultivate children's picture book creation talent, hope that our children can also have our life and culture from the growth of works.
    As a publisher of the book for children, I have been asking myself: in the end we are what kind of children's view, outlook on life, to look at a book we have to pay in the hands of children? Or more simply, in the end we hope that the child has what kind of reading taste? Hope he grows into what kind of person? For young children, it is important to the development of young children and the growth of young children. I sincerely hope that every book we publish is the best wishes for our children's books and reading.

Guarding the child's only childhood - an interview with Zhang Xing as chief executive

    Dressed in elegant clothes, tall and straight gesture, almost every day into the office to host large and small meetings, deal with documents, and colleagues to discuss the problem, she is the letter of the Foundation, such as Zhang Xing, chief executive.

将心比心,回应父母需求
    每当有人好奇问起:为什么在二十多年前那样的年代会想到成立“学前教育研究发展中心”,成为台湾学前教育的拓荒者?她总是能从当时的社会经济与环境背景,说出信谊基金会选择以“学前教育”作为社会关怀的理由--因为体认到06岁幼儿早期教育的重要,同时也是为了回应变迁社会中年轻父母的需求,所以期许成为一个有自动补位能力的民间机构,在正规的教育体制之外,尽一份力。接着,往往还会露出母亲般的温柔说:“我也常常想,如果当时不是因为我自己有两个学龄前的孩子,或许一切会不一样。”


    是的!正因为这一份为人母的心情,张执行长不单自己充分吸收最丰富的幼教知识,见识各种国外幼儿读物,也让无数的父母和幼教老师,有机会经由她的努力而享受新知,让孩子拥有高质量的学习资源和快乐童年。

辛勤耕耘,把孩子放在心中
    二十多年前,多数人认为幼儿什么都不懂,书店里也缺乏适合幼儿看的书,“亲职教育”更是一个陌生的名词。信谊基金会在张执行长的带领下耕耘学前教育这块土地,兢兢业业跨出第一步,一方面向儿童发展学者、小儿科医师请益,一方面向国外相关机构搜集研究资料、参阅各种图书杂志。从成立学前教育资料馆、发行台湾第一本和父母讨论06岁幼儿教育的《学前教育》杂志、为幼儿出版好书与玩具、举办亲职教育讲座、成立亲子馆,大力推行亲职教育。在第一个十年的里程中,唤起父母的成长意识,提倡儿童本位的教育观点,是最重要的目标。

提供资源,做父母的后盾
    进入第二个十年,为了坚持教育质量,并思考如何深化及广化信谊基金会累积的资源与本土经验,拓展服务层面,于是,信谊基金会又发展出许多新的工作,包括:创设信谊幼儿文学奖,鼓励为幼儿创作好书;成立实验托儿所,落实幼教理念,并研发教材;成立小袋鼠说故事剧团,提倡陪孩子读好书、说故事;创办父母学苑,为年轻父母规划有系统的进修课程。张执行长说:“在推动的过程中,虽然我们戮力以赴,但深知我们做得再多、再好,也绝不能替代父母,因此在各项工作上,总是提醒同仁把自己放在提供资源、支持和协助的角色上。我们该做的是帮助父母学习做父母,懂得享受育儿的乐趣,也要帮助父母培养自我学习的习惯和自我教育的能力,成为孩子的榜样,让孩子一起享受学习的乐趣。”

教育才能让孩子通往幸福之路
    一路行来,究竟是什么样的支持力量,让她对学前教育与亲职教育的推动保持不变的热情呢?张执行长坚定的表示:“我们从孩子的欢笑和父母的信赖中得到支持和力量。我始终相信,给孩子健康快乐的童年,就是给他幸福;给孩子最好的教育就是给我们的社会最美好的未来。教育不只是一个观念,一种形式,它是天天的工作和日积月累的工夫。只有更多父母愿意认真做父母,有更多的家庭和团体愿意一起守护孩子,给孩子好的教育,我们孩子的幸福,才是可以期待的。”


    As a professional early childhood educator, talk about in the years of experience, the most impressive thing is what? President Zhang did not hesitate to say: small baby every day to bring their parents a lot of surprises, we see the novice parents because of love and life moved, but also learn to re-examine the meaning of life and thinking about the value of life. More parents in order to accompany their children to learn, brave to go out, expand the field of learning, but also enhance the quality of life.
    But back to think about what is the child alone, the face of life when you need to carry the baby? She remembered that she was in contact with foreign masterpiece of picture books, ready to introduce to the children of Taiwan, the 16-year-old son was about to go to the United States to study, as if the apprentice to go down the rivers and lakes, the master was found his effort is also so Sentimental, Anxious to pass on his life skills to him. Suddenly, feel the master of the brave, respect, self-confidence, hope, feeling righteousness ... ... is not the child forward to move forward? So, she took this feeling, in the selection of each book are implied a mother's exhortation of the child, but also look forward to have the opportunity to read the children of these books, buried a small seed, slowly in the heart Sprout, thrive, wait until you need to let go, with enough power forward.

    This time, we are pleased with the resources at the same time than before, it can not be denied that the social changes due to rapid changes become uncertain, to use past experience and knowledge to raise the future of the child, is a how difficult task , Parents and educators, duty-bound, only struggling to move forward. From the CEO to lead the letter Foundation Foundation uphold the ideal of the poor, we see that this society has a good cycle to continue to stir, people feel the hearts of sunshine.
