Abstract

The objective of this paper is to analyze the overall users’ satisfaction with preschool institutions, and the correlation between different socio-economic characteristics of the respondents and their satisfaction with the obtained services. A survey was conducted in seven towns and municipalities in the Province of Vojvodina in Serbia, including 7798 parents of children using preschool services. The research instrument was a questionnaire composed based on similar surveys of user satisfaction. Multiple regression analysis served as the tool in analyzing the relationship between the users’ socio-economic background and overall satisfaction with services. Overall parent satisfaction with preschool education services appears lower among respondents with higher education, those who participate in the costs of preschool services and those living in urban areas.
