Preschoolers' Attitudes Toward Their Respective Early Childhood Programs

See More

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this study was to compare the attitudes of preschool children toward their program experiences and school adjustment, in order to ascertain whether differences existed among program type, age, and gender variables. A total of 90 preschool boys and girls 3 to 5 years of age from a church-related program, a Montessori program, and a Head Start program participated in the study. Children were surveyed using a self-report instrument, and teachers rated the children's adjustment to school environments. Results indicated that the attitudes toward program experiences of those children in the church-related program were different from those of children in the Montessori and Head Start programs. Results suggest that, in view of the increased emphasis on early childhood programs and the establishment of numerous preschool programs, such programs for young children should be evaluated from many points of view, including that of the preschool child.

Abstract/Notes: This comparison is based on the authors' selective review of literature, observations of Montessori preschools in America and Australia, and experience in early childhood teacher education in Australia. The discussion explores general educational objectives, curricula, children's activities, instructional approaches, and teacher role in preschools implementing Montessorian and eclectic (or "regular") approaches. The preparation of early childhood teachers for Montessori and regular preschools is also compared and discussed in relation to advances in knowledge of child development and modern educational theory and practice. Recent research comparing educational outcomes of Montessori and regular preschool education is cited. The discussion concludes with an evaluation of the relevance and usefulness of the Montessori approach within the fields of preschool education and teacher education today.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this thesis was to find out how parents experienced Montessori preschool education at the Aurinkoleijona school in Salo. The aim was to find out parents’ motives for choosing Montessori preschool Aurinkoleijona and to find out how much parents understand the theory of Montessori education. The purpose of this thesis was also to research parents’ understanding of and experience in parental partnership. The thesis was carried out in collaboration with Montessori day-care centre Aurinkoleijona that needed updated information on the significance of alternative preschool education in Salo. The theoretical section of the thesis looks at Finland’s national preschool legislation and the basics of Montessori pedagogy and parental partnership. This thesis was conducted as qualitative research and the data was collected using interviews. The focus group was four parents whose children were in Montessori preschool education. The data was then transcribed and the contents were analyzed. The results of the research indicate that the parents chose day-care centre Aurinkoleijona because of its location and in its quality of education. The parents had a clear understanding of the fundamentals of Montessori education. The results also showed that parental partnership is being executed well at Aurinkoleijona and the parents understand the underlying principles of parental partnership. / Tämän opinnäytetyön tarkoituksena oli selvittää vanhempien kokemuksia Aurinkoleijonan esiopetuksesta. Tutkimuksessa selvitetään vanhempien motiiveja valita montessoripäiväkoti ja heidän käsityksiään montessoripedagogiikasta. Tavoitteena oli myös selvittää vanhempien käsityksiä kasvatuskumppanuudesta ja siihen liittyviä kokemuksia. Tutkimus tehtiin yhteistyössä Montessoripäiväkoti Aurinkoleijonan kanssa, jolla oli tarvetta saada päivitettyä tietoa vaihtoehtopedagogiikan merkityksestä osana Salon kaupungin esiopetusta. Opinnäytetyössä käsitellään esiopetuksen valtakunnallisia perusteita ja montessoripedagogiikan sekä kasvatuskumppanuuden teoriaa pääpiirteissään. Tutkimuksessa käytettiin kvalitatiivista tutkimusmenetelmää ja tiedonkeruutapana toimi teemahaastattelu. Neljä esiopetusikäisen lapsen vanhempaa toimi tutkimuksen kohderyhmänä. Haastatteluaineisto litteroitiin ja analyysimenetelmänä toimi teemoittelu. Tuloksista kävi ilmi, että vanhemmat valitsivat Aurinkoleijonan sen sijainnin ja palveluiden laadun takia. Vanhemmilla oli myös selkeä käsitys montessoripedagogiikan periaatteista ja perusteista. Tämän tutkimuksen perusteella voidaan myös todeta, että kasvatuskumppanuus toteutuu päiväkoti Aurinkoleijonassa ja vanhemmat ymmärtävät kasvatuskumppanuuden tärkeät periaatteet.

Seeking Racial and Ethnic Parity in Preschool Outcomes: An Exploratory Study of Public Montessori Schools vs. Business-as-Usual Schools

Available from: University of Kansas Libraries

Publication: Journal of Montessori Research, vol. 9, no. 1

Pages: 16-36

Abstract/Notes: Montessori pedagogy is a century-old, whole-school system increasingly used in the public sector. In the United States, public Montessori schools are typically Title I schools that mostly serve children of color. The present secondary, exploratory data analysis examined outcomes of 134 children who entered a lottery for admission to public Montessori schools in the northeastern United States at age 3; half were admitted and enrolled and the rest enrolled at other preschool programs. About half of the children were identified as White, and half were identified as African American, Hispanic, or multiracial. Children were tested in the fall when they enrolled and again in the subsequent three springs (i.e., through the kindergarten year) on a range of measures addressing academic outcomes, executive function, and social cognition. Although the Black, Hispanic, and multiracial group tended to score lower in the beginning of preschool in both conditions, by the end of preschool, the scores of Black, Hispanic, and multiracial students enrolled in Montessori schools were not different from the White children; by contrast, such students in the business-as-usual schools continued to perform less well than White children in academic achievement and social cognition. The study has important limitations that lead us to view these findings as exploratory, but taken together with other findings, the results suggest that Montessori education may create an environment that is more conducive to racial and ethnic parity than other school environments.
