Environments for Play and Child Care: Observation and Interview Forms.
Cohen, Uriel; And Others
Observation and interview forms for a study of the design of child care facilities and outdoor play areas are offered in this document. Researchers were interested in obtaining a general overview of facilities and conducting both informal observations of children's use of space and informal, semi-directed interviews with parents, staff and two groups of children of mixed ages and backgrounds. The forms are titled: (1) observation of facilities/environments; (2) observation of spatial behavior; (3) interview with groups of children; (4) interview with parents; (5) interview with facility staff; and (6) interview with base master planner or equivalent. Use and modification of these instruments are unrestricted. (Author/RH)
