Effects of Variations in the Nursery School Setting on Environmental Constraints and Children's Modes of Adaptation

Available from: JSTOR

Publication: Child Development, vol. 42, no. 3

Pages: 839-869

Abstract/Notes: This study asked how specific characteristics of preschool settings affect the naturalistic occurrence of environmental constraints and children's adaptations to them. A taxonomy of 7 varieties of constraints invented by Jackson and Wolfson (1968) and a taxonomy of 14 adaptations were used. The constraints conformed to Schoggen's (1963) definition of conflict environmental force units (conflict EFU). 2 middle-class nursery schools and 2 Head Start programs were studied. These environments enabled the effects of several ecological variables- structure of the daily program, spaciousness of the schoolroom, and teacher-children ratio-and several personal variables-age, sex, and social class -on the incidence of conflict EFU and adaptations to be determined. Differential linkages of the adaptations with varieties of conflict EFU were also examined. The environmental variable which differentiated preschool settings was the program structure, and significant effects for age, sex, and social class were also found.

Moral Development in Montessori and Traditional Preschool Children: Does School Type Make a Difference?

See More

Abstract/Notes: This study investigates the moral development of thirty 5-year-old children in Montessori and traditional preschools. Data for the study were derived from five sources: an intelligence test; a perspective taking task; an altruism/helping task; an altruism/sharing task; and an interview for exploring moral reasoning. Two 30 to 45 minute sessions were used for data gathering. Comparisons were made between school type and across the total sample in regard to altruistic behavior, specifically helping and sharing; moral judgement, specifically positive justice reasoning; and cognitive perspective taking. Positive justice reasoning and altruistic behavior were not found to be affected by exposure to a Montessori or traditional school environment. Rather, results indicated that developmental influences alone determined reasoning and behavior, thus confirming developmental theories of moral growth, and suggesting as well that direct intervention or teaching may be more effective than environment in spurring moral growth.
