Identify the typology of Early Childhood education through Parents' perception: A Latent class analysis of ECPP:2016

Chen, Yi

A child’s early years are the foundation for his or her future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning and learning abilities, including cognitive and social development. Yet, since to date the majority of studies on early childhood focus on children's participation in and barriers to participating in nonparental care arrangements. The purpose of this study is to examine the different typologies of early childhood education from a large nationally representative dataset (ECPP:2016) using latent class analysis (LCA) based on parent’s perception. We found five significantly different latent class. Based on this typology, we discuss implications for future early childhood education research and practice.
