The preliminary findings are presented from an analysis of questionnaires, testing and focus group interviews. Study design and methods of collecting data are detailed. The students indicated their own perceptions of their confidence and competence in various subject areas and three influences became apparent from their responses. Teacher educators may find these preliminary results informative and instructive for the design of preservice early childhood education programmes.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, 25(1), p. 67-74||Publisher:||Elsevier||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1090-1027||Field of Research (FOR):||130313 Teacher Education and Professional Development of Educators||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 94
