Factors which Promote High Attainment in Children of Pre-School Age.
Niebrzydowski, Leon
This study sought to determine the causes of high or low attainment in preschool, focusing on 17 factors identified as having a significant influence on the development of children's abilities. The study focused on home factors influencing attainment among 30 high ability and 30 low ability children from preschools in Glowno, Poland. Questionnaires completed by their mothers revealed that children with high attainment reached a much higher fulfillment of educational stimulations of their parents than children with low attainment. Parents of children from the high ability group attached more importance and made more efforts to stimulate the development of their own children than the parents of the children from the low ability group. This is best shown in such factors as setting a good example in performing professional duties, creating opportunities for involving the child in discussion, good emotional contact, vocabulary development, and the child's involvement with nature. The influence of mothers' ascendancy over the child, helplessness toward the child, concentration on the child, and aloofness toward the child regarding attainment were also examined. (MDM)
