Security and emotional adjustment: Introduction to preschool
The importance of the quality in the relationships children form in their first years of life for their further socio-emotional development is well-established knowledge in developmental psychology.
However, the child’s entire network of close caregivers ought to be considered when studying the child’s development of attachment security.
Thus, we focus here on how the child's relationships in preschool, in interaction with other characteristics of the preschool environment and the child's family, together build the child's early care environment and contribute to its quality. The focus is specifically on how the introduction to preschool contributes to the child's development opportunities.
