This research is an exploratory piece of research that is part of the longitudinal study of early education and development (SEED).
The brief explores:
- whether the ECERS-R, ECERS-E and SSTEW quality scales provide the best predictors of children’s cognitive and self-regulation development
- if effective predictors of the effects of early childhood education and care (ECEC) quality on children’s development could be derived from a smaller collection of individual quality items
