Ecological Systems Theory Ecological Systems Theory views the child as developing within a complex system of relationships affected by multiple levels of surrounding environment. The innermost level of the environment is called the microsystem which consists of activities and interaction patterns in the child’s immediate surroundings. The second level of Bronfenbrenner’s model is called the mesosystem, encompasses connections between microsystems, such as home, school, neighborhood and child care center. The exosystem consists of social settings that do not contain children but that nevertheless affect children’s experiences in immediate settings. The outermost level of Bronfenbrenner’s model, the macrosystem, consists of cultural values, laws customs, and resources. Bronfenbrenner called the temporal dimension of his model the chronosystem.
