This study examines how different types of preschool experience may be related to subsequent sociometric status in the primary school. A sociometric questionnaire was given to 187 primary school children. Those who had previously attended nursery schools or playgroups scored significantly higher than those who had attended nurseries or remained at home. The results are cautiously interpreted as evidence supporting the importance of preschool experience for childhood social development but emphasizing that the type of experience may be crucial.
