Stegelin, Dolores A.
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v25 n2 p22-28 Spr 1997
A review of the literature on mixed-age settings reveals benefits in the areas of social and cognitive development. Research on the psychosocial advantages of mixed-age groupings is less consistent. Factors such as group size, age range, time together, and context-specific curriculum activities may have a relationship to the level of success and positive outcomes for children in multi-age groups.
