An investigation of scientific process skills of children in the Reggio Emilia kindergarten and in a private kindergarten
An investigation of scientific process skills of children
The aim of this study is to compare the scientific process skills of 5-6 years old preschool children who attend schools that apply the Reggio Emilia approach and those who do not. In this direction, 35 children who have been educated in Reggio Emilia approach and 45 children attending the kindergarten of a private college who do not conduct Reggio Emilia education have been studied (n = 80). The 'Scientific Process Skills Scale for 60-72-Month Children' developed by Özkan (2015) was used to measure the scientific process skills of children. Independent groups t test and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used to analyze the data. The scientific process skills scores of the children were analyzed in accordance with the variables of gender, mother's education status, mother's employment status, number of siblings and school type, and a significant difference was found between the variables of school type, gender, and mother's working status and children's scientific process skills. There is no significant difference between other variables and scientific process skills.
