1. Coulthard, Cathy. Perceptions of family involvement and cultural responsiveness in early childhood education.

Degree: 2009, Ryerson University

This study explores 30 early childhood professionals' and 31 family members' perceptions or practices associated with eliciting and fostering culturally responsive family involvement in the High/Scope approach to Early Childhood Education, and identified, research-based model of early childhood curricula. A non-experimental cross-sectional survey design was used to gather data in three different High/Scope programs related to the role of culture, the curriculum model, family involvement practices and the perceived differences of these practices by the early childhood professionals and the family members. The results suggest that both participant groups are aware of family involvement practices that strive to acknowledge the diverse contextual lives of children lending support to initiating culturally responsive practices in early childhood settings. Advisors/Committee Members: Santo, Aurelia Di (Thesis advisor), Ryerson University (Degree grantor).

2. Su, Wei. Preschool children's perceptions of other children based on body size.

Degree: 2008, Ryerson University

Overweight individuals are highly stigmatized in society. The purpose of the study is to determine if preschool children perceive overweight children to have more negative characteristics than non-overweight children. Interviews were conducted with 42 preschool children from 32 to 70 months old. Children listened to four stories about an interaction between two children, in which one child demonstrated socially unacceptable behaviour and one who demonstrated prosocial behaviour. Stories were presented along with two target figures (one target = overweight, one target = non-overweight). Results showed that children perceived the overweight target figures of the opposite gender. Male children also labeled overweight target figures as 'mean' more often than female children. No age differences were present. The findings of the study may be significant for the development of programs that will prevent or decrease negative body image attitudes and body stigmatization in order to create inclusive learning and social environments where all children are accepted, included and gain a sense of belonging regardless of their body shape or size. Advisors/Committee Members: Santo, Aurelia Di (Thesis advisor), Ryerson University (Degree grantor).

Subjects/Keywords: Obesity in children  – Social aspects; Obesity in children  – Psychological aspects; Body image in children  – Case studies
