ONE WAY OR MANY? Most of the research and theory quoted here has come from a Western perspective. It is important to remember that the users of our preschool services come from a range of backgrounds, with varying expectations and differing values. In their book Preschool in Three Cultures, Tobin, Wu and Davidson examine an American preschool, a Japanese preschool and a Chinese preschool and their findings provide much food for thought. In American preschools the pursuit of happiness is often one of the explicit goals, whereas Chinese preschools are regarded as places of serious learning where, if the children are happy as they learn, so much the better, but happiness is a by-product and not a goal.

Then one of the black mothers commented that all our dolls were white, so we went out and bought a black doll. One of the staff thought about bringing in an old tool box and some ‘Do It Yourself’ magazines. We got the children to help us rearrange things to make the area bigger. Since then—and that is at least six months ago—the children have been playing in there with much greater concentration and we notice many more children doing things like pretending to read the newspapers or to write messages and playing many more roles while acting out complex sequences.

One little girl had, in her box, a bus ticket. Through discussion, the staff discovered that it was the ticket she had used to go and visit her grandparents who lived at the seaside. When she was asked what she had seen at the seaside she surprised the adults by saying she had seen ‘arms and legs’. They had been expecting her to say ‘buckets and spades’ or ‘ice creams’. As sensitive and exploring teachers the adults explored further and discovered that the seaside town the little girl had visited was situated on a steep hillside and, in order to get to the beach, she had to walk down steep streets.
