Analytical products and data
This publication serves a methodological purpose: to check the consistency between the answers provided by kindergarten teachers and those provided by parents regarding certain characteristics of children in kindergarten, including their preschool path. It also examines whether inconsistencies between these answers can be associated with certain factors such as the characteristics of children, their family or their school.
