Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Culture plays an important role in daily life and is expressed in family and educational values and practices. This study examined the impact of culture and gender on children’s participation in preschool activities. One hundred twenty children from two subcultural groups were observed. A significant gender and culture interaction effect was found in play and social areas. These findings suggest that cultural values may influence gender expectations, as well as children’s participation in daily activities.
