Flexible Organisation of Educational Work in Kindergarten.
Plestenjak, Majda
This study examined the attitudes of 140 children ages 2 through 7 toward mixed-age grouping in a Slovenian kindergarten (preschool) setting. On four consecutive Friday mornings the children, normally grouped in classes aged 2-3 years, 3-4 years, 4-5 years, and 5-7 years, were given the opportunity to switch classes and play among children of differing ages. It was found that children aged 4-5 passed from one group to another more than any other age group. It was concluded that occasional togetherness on the playground and in play activities was sufficient for most of the children to satisfy their need for companionship with children of other ages.
