WE ARE COMMITTED TO CREATING YOUNG CHILDREN WHO HAVE STRONG, HEALTHY SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS
A safe social environment plays an important role in the healthy development and wellbeing of young children. Educators and parents/caregivers are critical in teaching young children about acceptable and unacceptable behaviour. Our study is currently interested in understanding more about the perceptions of educators and parents/caregivers in responding to aggression and bullying.
Prevalence of Social and Non-social Behaviours in Early Childhood and Teacher and Parent Perceptions About These Behaviours
This study aims to understand 1) to explore the prevalence and nature of preschool age (3- to 5-year old) children’s use of social and non-social behaviours, as reported by teachers and parents/caregivers; 2) to understand teacher and parent/caregiver perceptions of different non-social behaviours in terms of seriousness, levels of empathy, likelihood to intervene, and the types of intervention used to respond to these behaviours; and 3) to examine more closely teachers’ and parents’/caregivers’ views and responses to bullying.
