Even as two-year-olds, girls are more independent, sociable, study suggests
Science Daily (17.08.2015): Girls aged two and a half years master most everyday activities better than boys, a new Norwegian study shows. Both Norwegian and international research shows that girls have better language and social skills than boys in school and kindergarten. There are few studies, however, which document how small children master everyday activities in kindergarten.
Early childhood education and care is a central area of research at the University of Stavanger (UiS). Our research environments cooperate closely on a number of large projects within a range of topics in this area.
Our research is based upon the values of Norwegian early childhood education. We have close contact with the early education area, and our research has great influence on the development of the Norwegian early education and care sector.
The Reading Centre is home to several large, innovative research projects, and has regularly been awarded significant funding from nationally competitive research funding schemes.
Our research concerns language and literacy development and assessment in educational contexts, from kindergarten to workplaces.
Theoretically and methodologically the centre displays a broad fan of approaches to different aspects of literacy.
