Proximal and Distal Features of Day Care Quality and Children's Development.
Dunn, Loraine
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v8 n2 p167-92 Jun 1993
Examined the efficacy of assessing proximal factors in day care, such as children's experiences, and distal factors, such as caregiver characteristics, in predicting children's development. Proximal and distal quality were equally effective predictors. The validity of the National Association for the Education of Young Children's guidelines on developmentally appropriate practice as a measure of proximal quality was tentatively supported. (MM)
