Abstract: In the present study, the relation between caregiver sensitivity and child temperament in home-based childcare in the Netherlands was investigated. Eighty caregivers, children (between the age of 11 and 43 months) and their parents participated in this study. Temperament was reported by parent and caregiver using the Toddler Behavior Assessment Questionnaire. Caregiver sensitivity was measured with the Caregiver Interaction Scale during home visits. We did not find a relation between sensitivity and temperament. The results of this study indicate inconsistency in parent and caregiver reports of child temperament. Except for the subscale Activity, there were no significant correlations between corresponding subscales for parents and caregivers. On average, parents report more aggression than caregivers. The educational level of the caregiver is the only significant predictor of caregiver sensitivity. The present study gives reason for further investigating the interaction between temperament and sensitivity in different contexts. This could provide us with more insight into the concept of temperament and its relation to the child’s environment.
