Positive behaviour in the early years: perceptions of staff, service providers and parents in managing and promoting positive behaviour in early years and early primary settings

Research project that explored perceptions of staff, service providers and parents in managing and promoting positive behaviour in early years and early primary settings in two local authorities.

The project sought to identify the extent to which behaviour of young children, aged 0-6 years, is of concern to practitioners and service providers, and any relevant factors in terms of children’s or family circumstances or conditions. The study explored the approaches and interventions that practitioners and service providers use to manage behaviour and promote prosocial behaviour, and the extent to which practitioners feel skilled and prepared for the issues children present in their setting. The same issues were explored in parallel with parents.
