    Early childhood education has been a part of man\u27s history for many years. Psychologists have pointed out that the first four or five years of a child\u27s life is the period of most rapid growth and greatest susceptibility to environmental influences. Early childhood educators have been equally outspoken regarding the need for early childhood programs to supplement the home experience of children between the ages of three and six years. Evidence suggests that early childhood programs have positive effects on the child (Moore, 1978). Parents enroll their children into early childhood programs for different reasons such as socialization, education or only custodial care. An important factor determining whether a parent enrolls a child to a certain program depends on the parents\u27 perception toward that early educational program

    Attitudes of middle class mothers and fathers toward nursery school education were measured and compared. The subjects were parents of children who attended the Utah State University nursery school. A scale was developed to test parental attitudes. Attitudes toward nursery school education were definitely favorable. Comparison of attitudes expressed by mothers with those expressed by fathers revealed significant differences between the two groups, when the total number of responses of all scale items were considered together. The total scale included 48 items comprising three subscales, which tested the following parental attitudes toward nursery school education: attitudes concerning a child\u27s independence or dependence as it relates to nursery school attendance, attitudes pertaining to the value that the nursery school has for a child, and attitudes toward the care and guidance of a child while at nursery school . Comparisons of attitudes of mothers and fathers in each of these three areas disclosed that there was no significant difference between the two groups in attitudes expressed . Mean scores of mothers and fathers were 77.4 and 76.2, respectively. The scale used to measure attitudes was found t o discriminate significantly between the high and low scoring subjects . However, an item analysis of the scale revealed few individual items which could discriminate significantly between the high and low scoring subjects

    Introduction: Helping a child to become a socially adequate person is one of the objectives of nursery school education. The amount of acceptance or rejection a child receives from members of his peer group affects his social adjustment to the group and may carry over to his adjustment in other groups. A teacher who realizes the importance to a child of acceptance by others can guide the child toward more acceptance by the group or toward a better understanding of his position within the group. One of the ways of determining the degree of acceptance or rejection in a group of nursery school children is through the use of the sociometric test

    本論では、保育者養成における身体表現の授業の学びと保育実践への有用性について分析し、それに基づいて授業の在り方を検討した。その結果、4つの類型化による保育実践への有用性が確認され、心と身体の解放、日常・非日常の切り替え、自由・即興・交流、体験的学習という視点で授業の在り方を総括的に考察することができた。特に今回得られた重要な知見としては、授業者の意図を超えて表現指導以外においても保育者の成長につながる有用性が確認できたことである。このことは、身体表現授業の価値を再確認し、今後の授業改善への貴重な示唆として捉えることができる。In the present study, we investigated lessons on body expression at training for nursery school teachers and their usefulness in actual nursery school education, and reviewed teaching methods based on the findings. Based on the results ,usefulness in actual nursery school education was classified into four categories, specifically, emotional and physical release, switching between routine and non-routine activities, freedom, improvisation and exchange and experiential learning, and teaching methods were comprehensively reviewed from these perspectives. A particularly important finding was the confirmation of usefulness in nurturing nursery school teachers outside of expression guidance, which was beyond the scope of the teachers\u27 purpose. These findings reaffirmed the value of lessons on body expression, and may serve as valuable information for improving lessons in the future

    A measurement of parental opinions toward a university nursery school and its contribution toward the child's social, physical, emotional and intellectual development

    Get PDF
    Research indicated that if the experiences a child had in a nursery school were vital to his needs, they contributed greatly to his wholesome development socially, physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Studies cited in review of literature emphasized the importance of attitudes in childrearing practices, but little research had been done on the parents' attitudes toward preschool education. The purposes of this study were (1) to determine favorability of parental opinions toward a university nursery school and (2) to determine whether there was a significant difference between the opinions of parents who have had previous experience with a university nursery school and those who have not
