Hyelin Jeong and Tae-Yeon Kim

Abstract—The purpose of this article was to clarify the associations between student-teacher relationships and kindergarten students’ basic learning skills; reading, writing, and math. The subjects were 337 kindergartners and 27 teachers of 22 kindergartens located in Seoul, Gyeonggi, Cheon-ahn, Sejong, Daejeon. The results confirm associations between close student-teacher relationship and basic learning skills; reading and writing. And dependent student-teacher relationship and basic learning skills; math. This article suggests that there are differences in the relationship between teachers involved in reading, writing and math development of young children. Furthermore, it suggests that environmental factors contribute to the learning development of early childhood.

Index Terms—Close student-teacher relationship, dependent student-teacher relationship, basic learning abilities, kindergarten.
