Children's social-emotional skills develop better with the Good Start
Children’s negative behaviours decrease significantly faster over time in kindergartens where teachers use the Good Start methodology than in others. The positive area of prosocial behaviour then grows faster.
Research with a longitudinal quasi-experimental design was conducted 1. January 2017 – 1. June 2021 on a non-representative sample of 2603 kindergarten children across the Czech Republic. The areas presented are based on the standardized Strenghts and Difficulties Questionnaire, which was used by the kindergarten teachers to assess the children’s behaviour.
