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.

Abstract/Notes: This article vividly describes the indoor and outdoor components of what Montessori calls Home Sweet Home. Her vision of a domestic Children's House contains many facets: rooms of varied space, beautiful flooring, gardens that educate and evoke collaboration, and places for year-round exercise. This is a definitive yet rare Montessori article that shows the profound overlap of both natural and man-made spaces in a house designed for children.

NAMTA would like to express its gratitude to the Montessori-Pierson Publishing Company and the Maria Montessori Archives held at AMI for suggesting this lecture and making it available.]

Abstract/Notes: There are 25 million displaced children worldwide, and those receiving schooling are often educated in overcrowded classrooms. Montessori is a child-centred educational method that provides an alternative model to traditional educational approaches. In this model, students are able to direct their own learning and develop at their own pace, working with materials rather than in supervised groups or with direct teacher instruction. Because most children are working alone, teachers have more time to work one-on- one with children even when student-teacher ratios are quite large. This gives teachers increased opportunity to tailor their teaching to the specific needs and strengths of each student. We conducted an evaluation of Montessori classroom conversion for displaced students on the Thai-Myanmar border. We administered the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) to 66 children before and after classroom conversion and across treatment and control classroom conditions. We then conducted difference in difference testing. All domains showed meaningful improvements in ASQ scores, with the Montessori students gaining 18 points relative to the traditional students (p = 0.33). However, only the personal-social domain of the ASQ was statistically significant (8.8 point gain for the Montessori students relative to the control, p < 0.05) in our underpowered sample.
