Abstract

The primary aim of this study is to understand whether Malaysian pre-school education is culturally responsive to and inclusive for all cultures present in the setting by investigating children’s relationships across three cultures. The design and methodology in this study have been guided by Bronfenbrenner’s (1979) Ecological Theory, which investigates the contextual domains affecting children’s behaviour from ethnically diverse families. The study involved 25 children from one PERPADUAN Pre-school in an urban area. A qualitative methodology was applied in this study. Naturalistic observations of the children were conducted over 12 weeks, in classroom activities and free play, and were recorded in field notes and with a digital camera to gain understanding of the children’s behaviour. The children were interviewed based on observations and photographs conducted earlier. Through my synthesis of evidence and framework, I have constructed an ecological model of children’s social behaviour for this study.
