Provider Management of Child Stress Behavior in Family Day Care Facilities: Scaffolding for Learning and Development by Developmentally Appropriate Practice
Chang, Chih-Ying; Austin, Ann M. Berghout; Piercy, Kathleen W.
Journal of Genetic Psychology, v167 n2 p159-177 Jun 2006
Six children (5 boys, 1 girl; aged 36-60 months) participated in this qualitative study. Each child was enrolled in a different family child care facility. The authors rated the child care providers in 3 of the facilities as using developmentally appropriate practices (DAP) most of the time and rated the providers in the 3 other facilities as rarely or never using DAP. They also examined provider management of children's stress behaviors. The authors observed less active and passive stress behaviors in the high-DAP facilities than in the low-DAP facilities. The authors discuss the results with regard to the distinctively different day care culture found in high-DAP facilities versus low-DAP facilities and the implications for practice.
