Guimaraes, Sofia; McSherry, Kathleen
International Journal of Early Years Education, v10 n2 p85-94 Jun 2002
Examined whether activities in the preschool curriculum across Northern Ireland are more adult-directed or child-directed. Findings from observations of 71 preschool settings showed that the curriculum of most reception settings was more adult-directed, while most nursery schools, play groups, and private day nurseries adopted a child-initiated approach.
