Abstract (Summary)
The Relationship Between Preschoolers Academic Self-Esteem and the Quality of their Child Care Center Kara Lynn Bodnovich The present study examined the relationship between preschoolers academic self-esteem and the quality of their child care center. Data on the quality of the child care environment from the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale Revised (ECERS-R) was derived from nine preschool classrooms, and data on academic self-esteem from the Behavioral Academic Self-Esteem (BASE) Rating Scale was obtained from 110 preschool children. The total scores from each of the measures were analyzed to find possible significance. Additionally, correlations were performed on the subscales of both measures. It was evident from present and prior research that there is a relationship between the BASE subscale of social attraction and the ECERS-S subscales of interaction, parents and staff and language-reasoning.
