Teachers are more aware of how different environments shape chidlren's lives in different ways

Bronfenbrenner, co-founder of head start, came up with the Ecological systems theory. Thie theory views the child as devloping within a system of relationships. Those relationships are microsystem, mesosystem, exosystem, macrosystem, and chronosystem. They each have a powerful impact on development.

Teachers still use this theory today by interacting with children, in a nuturing way, to help them grow; working with their parents; and trying their best to be interaactivge with the child to keep them happy and growing.

This theory makes parent and teachers strive to provide positive influences in each system and minimize or eliminate negative influenes in the childs life to help them grow.
