Summary

The aims of the International Education Association's Preprimary Project are to examine developmentally relevant characteristics of the socialization environments of 4-year-olds in participating countries, and to ascertain the relationships between those characteristics and selected developmental outcomes. Phase I of the project consists primarily of a household survey of families. The survey concerns families' use of early childhood care and educational services and family characteristics. Phase I questions include the following: (1) In what settings are the 4-year-old children cared for? (2) What is the child's day like? (3) Who pays for the support of the settings, and what services are included in them? (4) Why are children placed in the settings? (5) What is the nature of the relationships between parents and caregiving settings? A major focus of the project is an attempt to arrive at an accurate picture of what it feels like to be a 4-year-old in the settings in which they are participants. In general, quality of life affects long-term development more powerfully than features of the environment. When adults' and children's views of the world diverge beyond an optimal extent, the child's view of the world provides the most predictive information. (RH)
