Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Early childhood education has been a part of man's history for many years. Psychologists have pointed out that the first four or five years of a child's life is the period of most rapid growth and greatest susceptibility to environmental influences. Early childhood educators have been equally outspoken regarding the need for early childhood programs to supplement the home experience of children between the ages of three and six years. Evidence suggests that early childhood programs have positive effects on the child (Moore, 1978). Parents enroll their children into early childhood programs for different reasons such as socialization, education or only custodial care. An important factor determining whether a parent enrolls a child to a certain program depends on the parents' perception toward that early educational program.
