Examining Swedish Profit and Nonprofit Child Care: The Relationships between Adult-to-Child Ratio, Age Composition in Child Care Classes, Teaching and Children's Social and Cognitive Achievements.
Sundell, Knut
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v15 n1 p91-114 2000
Investigated effects of program auspice (nonprofit versus profit child care), adult-to-child ratios, and class age span on teaching and on preschoolers' social and cognitive development. Found that age, gender, social background, and age span were significant predictors of children's social and cognitive development; adult-to-child ratio and teaching style were not. Profit centers had larger child groups than nonprofit centers. (Author/KB)
