This research is within the field of Cultural Psychology of Human Development and aims to investigate the sharing of education and care of young children (1-5 years) in a settlement and in a rural campsite. We consider education as a share of the participation of a group of people, adults or children, in the child\'s everyday moments. The initial hypothesis of the research was related to an apparent collectivization of education in the camp and an individualization in the settlement, determined primarily by cultural practices of each context. Ten children participated in the research (5 residents of a rural camp and 5 of a rural settlement). The methodology consisted in an active observation with the immersion of the researcher by an average of 6 days in family and community daily life of every child, taking field notes in a diary of activities, partners and children\'s care and education sharing scenarios. The results show: an intense sharing in the neighborhood group in the camp and extended family group in the settlement; the importance of care and education carried out among children, particularly in play situations; the migration history as a related condition to the search for greater sharing; the woman as main caregiver, closely related to domestic work aspect and agriculture. The work provides reflections on the diversity of ways of life of children in these contexts, therefore there\'s educational possibilities being built, result from a latent cultural wealth. It also points to considerations about public policies and guarantee of rights to children. (AU)
