Abstract



 This study aimed to identify latent profiles of home environment among families with preschool-aged children, and to test their longitudinal effects on school adjustment during the transition to elementary school. We used the data from the Panel Study on Korean Children [PSKC] (7th and 8th waves). The sample consisted of 986 families with preschool-aged children at wave 7. Latent profiles analyses on the home environment among families with preschool-aged children identified four profiles: vulnerable relationship/normal stimulation, good relationship/normal stimulation, normal relationship/normal stimulation, and normal relationship/vulnerable stimulation. Latent profiles were differently associated with children’s adjustment to first grade in elementary school. The result of regression showed that the children with vulnerable relationship/ normal stimulation, normal relationship/normal stimulation and normal relationship/vulnerable stimulation had a negative effect on school adjustment than the children with good relationship/normal stimulation. The findings suggest the importance of home environment of families with preschool-aged children.



Key words: home environment, school adjustment, latent profiles analyses
