A study of the enrollment intention and its influential factors for the early childcare department students in vocational and high school
With the declining birthrate in Taiwan， kindergarten childcare center teachers are being reduced in positions， the enrollment getting worse. If we hope to resolve the problem， we need to explore and realize the enrollment intention to the early childcare department students in vocational high schools according to the data sampled nationwide. We explore the vocational high school students intention of enrolment through two sections. 1.The conditions before vocational high school enrolment includes both for personal interest to choose the early childcare department and for the high school joint entrance achievement to choose the early childcare department， to test the connection between the two conditions and the preferred department in a university. 2.The conditions after vocational high school enrolment includes both perception of professional ability and perception of curriculum designs of school， to test the two conditions effects on choice of university. We conduct a random sampling from four areas of Taiwan (including the eastern area， the western area， the southern area， and the northern area). According to the percentage of the numbers of the vocational high school students of the area， if the schools are sampled， every student in grade 12 has to complete the questionnaire. The valid samples are 2176.The results show that approximately 30% of the students don't select to enroll the early childcare department， but if we can choose the enthusiastic students about early childhood education and pay more attention to the students who choose the early childcare department for personal interest before vocational high school enrolment， then we can predict these students enter the early childcare department in the future. Furthermore， we have to improve the negative perception about school curriculum design of school because it negatively influences selecting to enter the early childcare department. The results above can be a basic theory for the early childcare department to cooperate and ally， providing a primary answer to the early childcare department development and future vision.
