Sažetak
The main aim of this study was to determine the applicability of Santa Barbara Healthy Start questionnaire for preschool teachers working in Croatia. Intentional sample of all preschool children who are obliged to enroll in elementary school in the following school year from teaching groups in Kindergarten ‘Trnoruzica’ in Zagreb was examined. The metric characteristics of the Santa Barbara Healthy Start questionnaire for educators were identified. Average results are higher, compared with the U.S. population, which was expected, since children in Croatia start school a year later. Adjusted to the population of Croatian children, the questionnaire showed good psychometric characteristics, primarily reliability. Single Factor solution in our terms and conditions and for older children seems more appropriate than triple factorial one. Results from the questionnaire were significantly and positively correlated with other measuring instruments, aimed for assessing readiness for school.
