Caregivers' Epistemological Beliefs in Toddler Programs.
Berthelsen, Donna; Brownlee, Joanne; Boulton-Lewis, Gillian
Early Child Development and Care, v172 n5 p503-16 Oct 2002
Examined the beliefs about knowing and learning among six toddler caregivers as well as their conceptions of good caregiving. Found that two caregivers held relativistic epistemological beliefs and four held multiplistic and mixed epistemological beliefs. The latter group lacked the same degree of reflectivity as the former group. Caregivers with relativistic epistemological beliefs held sophisticated caregiving conceptions that integrated ideas and made more linkages between teaching and learning. (Author/KB)
