[en] Children’s socio-emotional skills are important for understanding their own and other’s behaviours and interactions. No study in Serbia has investigated this before. The purpose of the study was to explore the links between early socio-emotional skills, behaviour and cognitive development of preschool children in Serbia over time.Children (N=159) age 5-8 were rated by the teachers on their socio-emotional skills and behaviour and they were tested three times over 14 months in literacy and mathematics. All the outcomes were from Time 3 and the predictors from Time 1. Children’s socio-emotional skills and behaviour were associated with gender and mathematics. Mathematics was associated with children’s social skills and literacy. Literacy was associated with adjustment, gender and mathematics. Girls were rated more positively than boys and Roma children were rated significantly lower than their peers at all times. There were no age and programme attendance differences.This study offers the first insight on the relation between socio-emotional skills, behaviour and mathematics and literacy performance of an under researched population. This is important for the development and evaluation of intervention programmes. Attrition of the sample limits the findings.
