A total of 145 children 4 through 6 years of age attending 12 day care centers in Sweden answered a picture questionnaire consisting of 10 stories about everyday events which might occur in the center. Each child listened individually to the stories and gave his/her answer by choosing one of two or three pictures describing possible outcomes of the event. The stories concerned peer relations, possibilities for exerting influence on decisions, care situations, general feelings about being at the center, and perception of adult reactions toward disobedience. Findings indicated that 50 percent of the children viewed peer relations as being friendly, 48 percent gave answers suggesting they could exert influence, 67 percent suggested that they perceived the adults as caring, 63 percent depicted an adult as having an angry face in situations of disobedience, and attitudes toward being at the center were ambivalent. Children's answers did not differ significantly from center to center. Some differences were found regarding age. Older children seemed to have a more positive impression of the day care center than did younger children. The picture questionnaire is included. (RH)
