The prevalence of behavioral problems in three types of preschool group


Journal of Child Psychology & Psychiatry & Allied Disciplines 27(4): 455-472
The prevalence of behavioral problems in three types of preschool group
The behaviour of 637 2-4 year olds attending three types of preschool group setting was assessed, using a screening questionnaire. Significantly more children in day nurseries than nursery classes or playgroups were identified with behavioural problems. It was also found that boys, those with speech or severe health problems, and younger children in day nurseries, were more likely to have behaviour difficulties. There was only a limited overlap between behaviour difficulites at home and in the group setting. The implications of the results for the training of nursery staff and the organisation of preschool services are discussed.
