This study was conducted in order to investigate and to compare the opinions of kindergarten teachers and parents of kindergarten children toward preschool program curricula and the methods of teaching preschool.
The subjects consisted of sixteen teachers and twenty parents. These participants were asked to complete a survey. The survey given to the teachers asked them their views concerning different aspects involving preschool programs. The parent survey asked the parents questions concerning the same matter. Fifty percent of the teachers and parents were later interviewed to gather further information on their opinions toward preschools. Different interview questions were presented to each subject depending on the information given in the survey.
Survey and interview information was compiled and summarized in tables showing the opinions within each group of subjects. The opinions varied greatly toward preschool program curricula and the methods of teaching preschool.
