Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v15 n4 p559-76 2000
Examined effects of a 120-hour preschool training course on caregivers' behavior and children's development in early-years settings in Ireland. Found that caregivers who received training made significant gains in positive relationship and decreased in detachment levels. Children in their care made significant gains in complex social and cognitive play. Comparison group showed no significant improvements from pretest to posttest. (Author/KB)
