Paternal Participation in School Activities in a University Laboratory Preschool in the Philippines
AUTHOR : Carolyn Victoria Uy Ronquillo,Maria Perlita E. de Leon
INFORMATION : page. 59~79 / 2014 Vol.8 No.3
This research was conducted at a progressive laboratory preschool of a national university in the
Philippines. It examined paternal participation through the fathers’ attendance in seven school-wide
events and an in-depth interview. It aimed to set apart school activities which, fathers prefer / less prefer
to attend and identified variables that influence paternal participation. From the pool of 134 fathers who
participated in the study, those with high and low attendance were identified and fifteen participants
randomly selected from each group were interviewed about their perspectives on child-rearing and
preschool involvement. The teachers of their children were also interviewed regarding the nature of the
fathers’ participation. The results suggest that activities which involved the whole family are preferred
over those which required parental participation only. Younger fathers (those in their mid-thirties) and
working in the same university and whose children are between 0-2 years old were more likely to be
participative in school activities.
