Education before 5: Do Providers and Parents Want Different Things?
Fraser, Helen; Caddell, Dorothy
Early Child Development and Care, v153 p33-49 Jun 1999
Compared group and individual interviews to determine views of staff and 40 parents from four Scottish preschool centers. Found that parents' priorities for their children lie in the emotional and social domain and that they want a warm and homelike experience. Argues that staff should harness this parental "force" to resist pressures for a more academic preschool curriculum. (Author/KB)
