Abstract

Development occurs through and by social interaction and play, according to socio-interactionist theories. Thus children, specially during the first years of life, require a support from an environment which will favour their involvement in play activities and in social interactions. To provide such an environment constitudes a challenge for daycare centers, where the partners most available for interaction are young peers. The present study analyses the social organization of young children in different areas of a given environment. Two nursery groups were studied during free activity in the presence of their caregiver in two day-care centers which attend low income families. Each group consisted of 13 children, aged 20 to 35 months, who where familiar with one another and with the center. Data were recorded on video tape during two different phases. In phase I the usual environment was observed, particularly the adult's zone, defined by the area around the caregiver. In phase IT, two additional zones were structured by delimiting small areas with low-standing bookcases (circumscribed zones). Comparisons were made considering the children's localization, social status and activities in the adult's zone in the two phases and in the variouszones of phase II. The results indicate that the social organization among children and between children and caregiver in the adult's zone is favoured in phase II. There was a clear difference between the adult's and the circumscribed zones in phase II, with the later providing more support for peer interaction and play. Those results confirm thatthe behavior of young peers in groups is influenced by the spatial organization of the setting. This point should be taken into account when planning the daily environment and routine in day-care centers, in order to foster the children's development through their involvement insocial interactions and play activities.
