Survey

 


 

Survey procedure

Survey consists of 2 stages:
I) In first stage the parents and the members of the staff evaluate a “good kindergarten” in general, using the criteria of Wind Rose. They evaluate each aspect in a scale from 1 to 5.

The results of the first stage give good input for

  • discussions with parents and staff to negotiate the meanings of different aspects, to explain, why there were valued so high or low and through this activity
  • to build common understanding and shared knowledge about the quality of kindergarten and the aspects that are valued the most in particular kindergarten.

II) During the second stage of the survey the same parents and staff fill the same Wind Rose, but now they evaluate the certain classroom – where their child attends (parents), where they are working (teachers) or different classrooms of kindergarten one by one (the leaders).
