The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between working memory and the social relationship between teachers and preschoolers. Method. In this cross-sectional study 212 children and 29 teachers participated. The Digit Span backward test was used to measure verbal working memory. The Odd-one-out testwas used to measure visuo-spatial working memory. The teacher-child relationship was measured using the ‘Leerkracht Leerling Relatie Vragenlijst’. Results.

These results suggest that a positive teacher-child relationship has a positive relation with both children’s verbal and visuo-spatial working memory.
