Author(s): Nabanita Pandit, Dr. Susmita Neogi
The present study attempted to investigate the impact of pre-school factors on creativity of young children. Subjects were drawn from randomly 20 pre-schools and 7 anganwadi situated in five different zones of Kolkata i.e. south, east, west, north and central. The sample comprised of 225 young children belonging to the age group of 4 to 5 years. A Questionnaire was developed on the different conditions of the pre-school environment to measure the school factors influencing creativity. A standardized test by Baquer Mehdi was administered on the subjects to assess creativity of the children. After scoring the responses, mean, standard deviation, one-way ANOVA and logistic regression were computed for analysis. The findings suggest that there is a significant influence of pre-school factors on the creativity of the pre-school children and method of teaching is the most significant predictor of creativity which implies that if the pre-school children are provided with an environment where they have the freedom to explore themselves, they will be able to create unique products and express their originality.
