The purpose of this research is to document piklerian approach’s components with young children in the context of daycare settings. Research has shown that the level of quality of interactions for children under 3 years of age in childcare is not high enough (Barros et al., 2018; Jamison et al., 2014). The theoretical framework draws on the ecosystem model of educational quality (Bigras & Lemay, 2012), attachment theory (Ainsworth, 1983; Bowlby, 1988), and self-determination concept (Ryan & Deci, 2017, 2020). This project is embedded in a pragmatic paradigm where reality is both singular and multiple (Creswell & Creswell, 2018). This research is a systematic review of the literature. Following the formulation of the research question, inclusion criteria were determined, a design plan was developed, and databases relevant to the research question were identified. Ethical consideration was provided particularly through the assistance of a librarian documentarian and by following a predetermined research protocol, so as to remain as unbiased as possible. Nineteen articles covering thirteen studies including seven theses or dissertations were identified. The majority of these studies focused on the educator-child relationship. Results suggest that components of this approach could contribute to improving the educator-child interactions’ quality. However, as piklerian approach emerging in different settings, these studies are more descriptive. Although they provide food for thought for practitioners, studies leading to a better understanding of this approach, verification of its contribution and measurement of its effects on child development should be considered.
